Rams Accepting Nominations for Georgia Frontiere Community Quarterback Award

Posted Sep 1, 2014

Find out how you can nominate an upstanding volunteer in your community for the 2014 Georgia Frontierre Community Quarterback Award to receive funding for the organization in which they represent.

NFL players working in the community get plenty of attention and praise, and rightfully so. They can make a huge impact on a community through giving of their time, money, and inspiration to others. But there are unsung heroes who work tirelessly every day to make St. Louis and the surrounding community a better place.
 
Heroes like Angie Wuebbels. Her mission, through Unlimited Play, is Hannah’s Playground.  Hannah’s Playground was created to ensure children with disabilities have the opportunity to play and interact with other children outside. Hannah was born with global developmental delays, cerebral palsy and other challenges that kept her confined to a wheelchair, thus making it nearly impossible for her to maneuver and enjoy her local playground.
 
Over 15 months, Wuebbels made Hannah’s Playground her personal mission, helping raise more than $150,000 to build an inclusive playground in Hannah’s  memory.  Hannah’s father nominated Wuebbels last year, and she became one of four recipients of the 2013 Georgia Frontiere Community Quarterback Award, receiving a grant to help bolster her efforts in her community, where the dream of Hannah’s Playground moves closer to becoming a reality.
 
The Rams want to ensure people like Angie Wuebbels do not go unnoticed. That’s where the 2014 Georgia Frontiere Community Quarterback Award program comes in.

Each year, the Rams provide $20,000 in grant money to local charitable efforts in honor of the team’s late owner, Georgia Frontiere. Up to ten outstanding volunteers in the community will be selected, and the charities of the organizations in which the volunteers represent will receive funding.
 
The Rams need your help identifying those deserving volunteers. You can do your part to make sure these individuals get the recognition they deserve and local charities get much needed funds through the nomination form found here.
 
To all the volunteers out there, the Rams say thank you and keep up the great work.
