SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Former South Brunswick High School quarterback, Rutgers wide receiver, and current Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohammed Sanu has partnered with a New Brunswick charity to help children facing serious health issues.

The NFL star, and South Brunswick High School alumnus, has joined with the Embrace Kids Foundation on a new fund raising endeavor called “Sanu’s Crew.”

 According to the organization’s website, the program will offer mentoring, transition support, and scholarships to patients from the pediatric programs at Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and related hospitals.

The first fund raising project will be a one day football camp on Saturday, June 27 at South Brunswick High School from 1p.m. to 4 p.m., and will be geared to children in grades one through eight, according to a press release.

The entry fee is $ 85 per camper.

The program will feature many non-contact football drills, and training tips, and all attendees will receive a t-shirt and an autographed picture of Sanu.

“I’ve always had a passion for helping kids and through some hospital visits I have seen the incredible work being done by Embrace Kids” said Sanu.

The organization began in 1990 when parents, friends and medical professionals joined together to raise funds for children with cancer and other serious disorders, according to the website.

What started as a modest grassroots effort has grown and flourished into an impressive organization and a solid volunteer network of parents, patients, professionals, community leaders and students, according to the site. 

In 2013, Embrace Kids Foundation provided more than $1.4 million in services to children and families throughout the New Jersey/New York City metropolitan area.

The child patients range in age from infancy to young adulthood and encompass all ethnic and social backgrounds. Our family programs and support services are offered at absolutely no cost to the family, according to the organization. 

For the past six years, Embrace Kids has had a partnership with former Rutgers standouts Brian Leonard and Jason and Devin McCourtney on a Tackle Sickle Cell Campaign, according to the organization.

To register, families are urged to visit embracekids.org as soon as possible.

Check-in will commence 30 minutes before the scheduled time. “Space is limited,” according to Foundation Executive Director Glenn Jenkins.
