Every NFL game day starts with hope. In the City of Cowboys and Culture, the fans are always hopeful that their team will emerge victorious. Today is no different and for the first time, football fans can do something for charity while rooting for their team on Super Bowl XLV game day!
This morning, Mayor Mike and Rosie Moncrief, former NFL players Darrell Green and Tony Dorsett, and other Fort Worth representatives will join walkers from across the nation in downtown’s Sundance Square to raise funds for the FWISD and Cook Children’s Medical Center. 65% of event proceeds will go directly to Fort Worth charities – 45% to Cook Children’s and 20% to Fort Worth Independent School District. Up to 4,000 FWISD elementary students will receive complimentary walk entries.
The first-ever Super Sunday Morning Hope Walk will provide a unique chance for the general public to meet former NFL players and experience excitement surrounding the big game day, all while ESPN broadcasts live from Sundance Square. And folks who would prefer to sleep in, can make a tax-deductable donation to the Hope Walk Foundation.

7:30AM Participant/Sponsor check-in and on-site registration opens
