Support Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital and Safe Kids Cumberland Valley

The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is a proud leader of Safe Kids USA, a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children, and the lead organization of Safe Kids Cumberland Valley.

Safe Kids USA is partnered with FedEx and the National Football League on the FedEx Air and Ground Competition, a weekly competition to determine the best quarterback and running back in the NFL.

Safe Kids Cumberland Valley is paired with the Tennessee Titans, and this year running back Chris Johnson has been nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Year.

The Safe Kids Coalitions paired with the winning quarterback and running back will receive a $25,000 donation. Funding will be used to support and improve pedestrian safety initiatives in Middle Tennessee, and we need your help to win. Fans can vote on NFL.com for their favorite quarterback and running back until Friday, Jan. 29. The winning players will be announced during Super Bowl week on Wednesday, Feb. 3.

Please support Children’s Hospital and Safe Kids Cumberland Valley by voting for Tennessee Titan Chris Johnson. It only takes a few minutes and you can vote as often as you’d like until Jan. 29.
