Peter King with The MMQB is reporting that New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson will donate $5 Million Dollars to to help former Saints special-teamer Steve Gleason build and operate Team Gleason House for Innovative Living.
New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson is donating $5 million to help former Saints special-teamer Steve Gleason, who now is wheelchair-bound with ALS, and his Team Gleason foundation build and operate Team Gleason House for Innovative Living. The gift, Gleason said, will be used as an endowment for annual operating expenses for the home. The house, in New Orleans, will allow 18 ALS patients to live fairly close to self-sufficient lives in rooms where the operation of everything will be controlled by patients’ eyes. The home is scheduled to open in June, and Gleason doesn’t want to stop at just one in New Orleans.
“Call me crazy,’’ Gleason said Sunday afternoon, “but I envision a facility like this in every NFL city.”
