In March 2013 NFL star Rob Gronkowski came to visit his #1 fan Tawfiq Baity who has cerebral palsy. Now the goal is to get Tawfiq to the Sunday night game Patriots vs Broncos 11/24!!
GRONK is helping out with tickets for Tawfiq and family to attend the game and GRONK is rolling the red carpet out once Tawfiq arrives in Boston. This is where we need the help of the entire Patriots fan base!! We have some expenses that needs to be taken care of for Tawfiq including travel, a special room with needed accessories, some spending cash for the family, and any unforeseen expenses. We are asking for $2,500.00 in hopes that we can get a bit more because the expenses are actually between $2,500.-$5,000 anything raised above that will be donated to a foundation of our choice that helps kids with cerebral palsy.
The Get well video:
This story started in October 2012 when I met Tawfiq Baity who was a 16 year old boy that has cerebral palsy. I met Tawfiq at a football game between his high school the Lockport Lions and my alma mater Riverside high school. I must say Tawfiq is an amazing kid that has become my friend. He loves football and his favorite team is the New England Patriots and his favorite player is Patriots star TE Rob Gronkowski. While watching the between Lockport and Riverside Tawfiq told me that he never went to an NFL game and he would love to go to a game in Foxboro at Gillette Stadium. After hearing about his love for the Patriots and GRONK we tried to set it up for Tawfiq to attend a Patriots game and meet GRONK, but because of his condition traveling 10hrs by van would be difficult. At the same time this was being set up GRONK broke his forearm and was sidelined due to his injury. Me and Tawfiq had an idea to send GRONK a get well video and the video went viral and that was the get well video above.
This video would set the stage for Tawfiq to meet GRONK. GRONK was nice enough to surprise Tawfiq at with a surprise visit at Tawfiq's high school. This story went national from ESPN, New York Times, AOL homepage, CBS Boston and tons more. We captured everything and made a video of the story and thats the video you see above.
GRONK has returned from his injury and now I am attempting to help get Tawfiq to a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium. The game we are attempting to get Tawfiq to attend is November 24, 2013 when the Patriots face off against the Broncos. It's a Sunday night game and would be a great game for Tawfiq to see in person!!
Please help us make this happen for Tawfiq. He really deserves it! He is a great kid!! We are reaching out to the entire Boston area and Patriot fans across the world to help make this happen for Tawfiq. Lastly we will document the entire ordeal via video that Patriots fans can watch on Youtube!! Let's go Patriots!!
