Marshawn Lynch may no longer be a major force for the Seattle Seahawks, but he’s definitely become a major force in the world for the less fortunate.
The recently retired Seahawk has recently partnered with fellow defensive end Cliff Avril to improve the quality of life for the people of Haiti. Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Godser Cherilus and linebacker Stephen Tulloch of the Detroit Lions pitched in on the relief efforts on the island as well. The team is currently working on building homes and schools in Haiti.
JOC PR recently tweeted this video of the crew working on their latest project in Haiti:
Avril told the Seahawks,”It’s awesome to have their support, it’s awesome to be in a situation where guys are willing to take that step with you. Marshawn wants to help actually build the school out there. There’s a lot of good guys in the NFL.”
It appears that the Haiti trip is just the beginning of the team’s philanthropic efforts. On top of building the school, Avril and his colleagues plan to host both a football camp for the youth, as well as a mobile medical clinic later on.
