Boulware, Leggett to assist critically wounded military personnel
*National Champions and Clemson superstars Ben Boulware and Jordan Leggett are both taking part in the EXOS 2017 NFL Combine Challenge on Pledge It; going up against each other in a friendly competition to support Stand By the Wounded and its mission of assisting critically wounded military personnel, veterans and first responders. Fans and supporters can pledge a donation for every bench press rep that Boulware and Leggett have during combine testing.
For the second year in a row, EXOS, the nation's premiere athletic training facility, has partnered with PLEDGE IT to give future NFL stars the opportunity to use their combine performance to raise money for charity through the EXOS 2017 NFL Combine Challenge.
Ben Boulware and Jordan Leggett will be going up against each other, as well as other top NFL prospects, in the friendly competition to see who can raise the most money for Stand By the Wounded. Fans and supporters have the opportunity to pledge for every bench press rep or vertical jump inch of their favorite players. Fans can also make a one-time flat donation to the players’ campaigns. Leggett’s bench press testing day is March 3rd, while Boulware’s takes place on March 4th. Both Boulware and Leggett are asking fans and supporters to pledge for every bench press rep they perform:
When Leggett, who is training at EXOS for the combine, heard about the Challenge he was the first to sign up. “When I learned about this opportunity, I jumped on it right away,” explained Leggett. “Eight years ago, I trained with EXOS to prepare for high school football. EXOS not only trains athletes like myself but rehabilitates wounded military personnel injured in action. My time at EXOS has allowed me to build a special bond with these brave individuals serving our country.”
Boulware also expressed the importance of joining the fundraising campaign.
“As I take the next step toward my NFL dream, I am excited and humbled to participate in the 2017 EXOS NFL Combine Challenge, joining other future NFL rookies to use my performance at the NFL Combine to support critically wounded military personnel, Veteran, and first responders," Boulware said. "These are our true heroes, and that’s why I have joined the 2017 EXOS NFL Combine Challenge to support Stand By the Wounded.”
