NFL Twins to Tackle Sickle Cell Disease

Jason and Devin McCourty will visit a blood drive at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital this Saturday.

NFL defensive backs and twin brothers Jason McCourty of the Tennessee Titans and Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots will visit Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital on Saturday, Feb. 23 for a campaign against sickle cell disease.

The McCourtys, along with the Embrace Kids Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and the New York Blood Center are working together on the “Tackle Sickle Cell” campaign, which intends to educate and raise monetary and blood donors to fight against the disease.

The McCourty twins will visit a blood drive at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital that runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Anyone who donates during the drive will receive a signed photograph of the twins and a Tackle Sickle Cell t-shirt, according to the hospital.

Anyone who registers through TackleSickleCell.org and donates will receive a $10 restaurant gift card, and will be entered in a drawing for a signed football helmet and a $100 restaurant gift card, according to the hospital.
