FOX Sports has chosen St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for its charitable initiative during this year’s NFL Season.

The announcement of the Memphis charity’s selection after visits to the hospital in August by on-air personalities Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Buck, Jay Glazer, Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, Curt Menefee, Pam Oliver and Michael Strahan.

During their visit, a series of public service announcements were filmed that will be aired this football season, including on Super Bowl Sunday.

FOX Sports will also support St. Jude through numerous on-air mentions all season long and will be involved in St. Jude events and activities.

“I played a long time in the NFL and have played with and seen a lot of tough and courageous individuals, but nobody can match the courage and determination of these wonderful children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” Bradshaw said.

A special website, www.stjude.org/foxsports, will offer football fans the opportunity to learn more about St. Jude and support its mission.
