Rex Burkhead Speaking EngagementCincinnati Bengals running back Rex Burkhead delivered the keynote speech at the inaugural Team Jack Foundation Gala at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska on March 8. The event was hosted by ESPN reporter Shelley Smith, with co-chairs being Burkhead’s former coach at the University of Nebraska Bo Pelini and his wife, Mary Pat.

Also in attendance was seven-year-old Jack Hoffman, who was diagnosed with pediatric brain cancer in Spring 2011, and for whom the Team Jack Foundation was founded. In case you have forgotten, Jack scored a famous 69-yard ESPY-winning touchdown during the 2013 Nebraska spring football game that won over the hearts of fans around the world. With the Team Jack Foundation’s primary focus being to raise money for pediatric brain cancer research, the inaugural gala was held as a fundraiser to benefit this goal.

As of January 2014, the Team Jack movement had raised and committed more than $1 million for research and is working directly with world-renowned researches to develop relevant and effective research initiatives. With the support of well-known and respected athletes like Rex Burkhead, the message and goals of the Team Jack Foundation are reaching a large base of people who are willing to step up and donate towards the cause of finding a cure for brain cancer.

Burkhead was an All-American for the Cornhuskers in 2011 and 2012 and was also a star in the classroom, earning the National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete Award in 2012. After completing one of the most successful all-around careers in Nebraska football history in 2012, in which he finished as one of the top five all-time rushers, he was selected in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.
