“I’m honored to partner with Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation. No child should have to endure a physical deformity because of lack of insurance or lack of financial resources. This Foundation gives children a new lease on life. I’m excited to bring some of the biggest names in professional sports to help raise awareness of the great work performed by Fresh Start Caring for Kids.” — 2005 World Series MVP, Jermaine Dye
