Cruz Wins NFLPA Community MVP of the Week

  • Date / October 21, 2016
  • Location / New York, NY


The NFLPA Community MVP of week 6 was awarded to VCF’s own Victor Cruz!

“I am extremely honored to be named the NFLPA Community MVP this week. I know many of my colleagues throughout the league are out in their communities doing great things often and are just as deserving,” Cruz said. “When the opportunity to go out to Greenwich and host a Fire Safety and STEM event at a Boys & Girls Club presented itself, it seemed like a step in the right direction [for the Victor Cruz Foundation].”

Victor stood before an audience of students in grades 4-6, Cruz joined members for the GFD in providing lessons like “stop, drop and roll” while giving them a look at a fire truck and firefighter gear. 

“The goal of my foundation is to show youth that STEM is in their everyday life and they have the ability to be STEM innovators,” Cruz said. “[The Boys & Girls Club] taught me so many things about life in general and I know it does wonders for so many kids.”

Congrats to our very own!
