Browns support Youth Challenge

Former Browns QB Bernie Kosar visited with a group of Youth Challenge participants and volunteers before the regular season opener at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

The Browns may have lost against Philadelphia, but the kids from Youth Challenge were the winners at the team’s home opener on Sept. 9. For the seventh year, the Cleveland Browns Foundation donated a suite, 50 tickets and a chance to be on the field for pre-game festivities to Youth Challenge. 

Besides getting an up-close view of the team warming up, the kids also got to meet former Browns stars and the game's honorary co-captains, Bernie Kosar and Webster Slaughter. 

For 36 years, Youth Challenge has been fulfilling its mission of bringing together children with physical disabilities and youth volunteers who enrich each other's lives through one-on-one participation in adapted sports and recreational activities. The organization provides free programming and transportation to children from all over Northeast Ohio.
