Athlete Charities Giving Back

The Steve Nash Foundation benefits kids in Canada and Paraguay.

A lot of professional athletes give their time and money to very worthy causes. We take a look at some of the sports world's most generous athletes.

Charities - The Steve Nash Foundation

Canadian native Steve Nash might be making his living in the United States, but he has not forgotten about his fans up north. Every year the Phoenix Suns star hosts the Charity Classic Basketball Game in Vancouver, BC where he raises money for his foundation. The Steve Nash Foundation supports charities that promote health in kids - specifically underpriviledged kids. The Foundation benefits children in his native British Columbia, Canada as well as in Phoenix. He also contributes money to development projects in Paraguay.

Charities - The Warrick Dunn Foundation

Atlanta Falcons running back Warrick Dunn knows what is like to come from a single-parent home. His mother Betty raised Warrick and his five siblings on the tough streets of New Orleans. Now that he's in a position to help, he started the Warrick Dunn Foundation to help families like his own - helping single mothers purchase homes. Since he started his foundation nine years ago, the foundation has raised over $5 million in donations.

Charities - The Tiger Woods Foundation

Tiger Woods knows that not every kid can afford to play the sport of golf. That's why he set up a foundation to provide free golf clinics to disadvantaged youth - especially those in the African American community. Tiger's foundation also provides college scholarships for kids. In February 2006, he opened the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, California. The center boasts 35,000 square feet of multi-media learning tools for nine to 18 year olds.

Charities - The Oscar de la Hoya Foundation

Boxing star Oscar de la Hoya's foundation provides opportunities for kids in his old neighborhood in East Los Angeles, California. His foundation also has a learning center, where thousands of neighborhood children can benefit from a safe and technologically advanced facility after school and on weekends.

Team Audi #46
Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
