Gleason thanks Cougs for support |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
Former Cougar Steve Gleason couldn't be attendance Saturday night, as the Cougs honored him with Team Gleason night at Martin Stadium. But, his presence was certainly felt, as his mom Gail accepted a check for his foundation. And, even grown men were likely brought to tears when the former NFL star and Cougar standout thanked the fans for their support.
Gleason, who is battling ALS, thanked the Cougs for their support. His speech is noticably slower than the last time fans heard from Gleason, but his resolve is just as strong in battling this disease and finding technology that will improve the lives of other patients battling ALS.
Over the past year, the WSU Student Athlete Advisory Committee has raised $14,170 for the Gleason Initiative Foundation.
