The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration kicked off the highly anticipated Super Bowl 2020 weekend Thursday, and along with star-studded performances the event honored NFL stars Quinnen and Quincy Williams for their work with the American Cancer Society.
Quinnen, who plays for the New York Jets, and his brother, Quincy, of the Jacksonville Jaguars, were awarded the 2020 Faith in Action award at the James L. Knight Center.
The Williams brothers sadly lost their mother to breast cancer a decade ago and decided to turn their tragedy into something positive by working with the American Cancer Society to ensure that people of color in the United States receive proper cancer screenings in urban communities.
The Figgers Foundation awarded the American Cancer Society with a check for $2,500 during the celebration.
The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration along with the BET Network will highlight the American Cancer Society during its broadcast of the event at 7 p.m. Eastern time Saturday. The brothers stress the “critical importance of cancer prevention and awareness,” said organizers in a statement to The Christian Post.
