Cincinnati Bengal and Former TCU Quarterback Andy Dalton Launches Hub At Cook Children’s Medical Center
On Monday, Cincinnati Bengal and former TCU quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife Jordan revealed Andy’s Hub Presented by Albertsons at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The Hub is a locker filled with iPads, notebook computers, DVD players, gaming systems and other items intended to help pass time during treatment or recovery.
After the couple presented the Hub at a press conference and ribbon-cutting ceremony, the Daltons visited with patients and their families. Andy’s Hub was placed in the Dodson Specialty Clinics Infusion Center, available for patients who are chronically and critically ill as well as their families.
This is the first of Andy’s Hubs that the Dalton’s hope to place in children’s hospitals throughout Fort Worth and the Greater Cincinnati area. The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation is also offering the Pass It On Fund as another way to provide additional support to patients in both communities by providing grants that help pay medical bills and assist with other needs of the families.
The Daltons will be hosting a fundraising event, Fiesta & Goal, later this month at Joe T. Garcia’s in Fort Worth. Money raised at the event will support programs such as Andy’s Hub and the newly established Pass It On Fund in Fort Worth.
