In 2012 Moise Fokou, a Tennessee Titan Linebacker, created the Root 53 Foundation. Moise wants to make a difference for children and their families in highly urban areas. The foundation provides hands-on learning in the DC, Maryland and Tennessee regions.
The Root 53 Foundation provides resources that children need to succeed in under-served communities. They donate to the children by ways of their Lunchbox, Future Rulers Initiatives and Root 53 Backpack programs along with hosting healthy living workshops.
The Root 53 Foundation mission is “to prepare children to be successful by providing educational and resource support.” They inspire change in the youth by the way of their “roots”.
