Earlier this year, Lucky Tiger presented for professional football player, Harry Sydney, with a $5,000 grant to support his program, “My Brother’s Keeper.” It was the first award of the company’s efforts to recognize men who are making a difference in their communities and in the lives of other men. The program is called “Men Who Roar.”
“We were thrilled to honor Harry and the great work he’s doing in Green Bay and the surrounding area,” said Lucky Tiger President, Alan Murphy. The money donated to the program helps sustain the organization on its mission to provide mentorship and male role models to young men struggling with school, personal relationships, family issues and destructive dependencies.
As a part of Lucky Tiger’s mission to make men’s lives better with great products and social outreach, they asked podcast host, Robert Meyer Burnett, to spend some time with Harry in order to document his story and share the big picture of what My Brother’s Keeper is doing to make life better in Green Bay.
In 2003, Harry founded My Brother’s Keeper, a men’s mentoring program designed to help troubled men put their lives back together. A former NFL running back, Sydney played for six seasons for both the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers after three years with the Denver Gold and Memphis Showboats of the USFL. He’s also the only NFL player who has caught touchdown passes from both Joe Montana and Brett Favre.
