Founded by Eddie Jackson of the Chicago Bears in 2018, the Remain to Reach Foundation aims to inspire and provide resources to at-risk youth who have found themselves in trouble with the law at a young age. Eddie's journey and life before football as well as his emergence at Alabama led to the creation of the foundation. During the 2019 season, Eddie will be representing the Remain to Reach Foundation during the NFL's 'My Cause, My Cleats' initiative.
Eddie played college football for Alabama, where he was a CFP National Champion in 2015. Drafted in 2017 in the fourth round by the Chicago Bears, Eddie Jackson started his entire rookie season. The next season Eddie became a Pro-Bowler and a First Team All-Pro.
In the end he is all about being a difference maker, not only on the field, but off helping young kids with his new “Remain to Reach Foundation” for juvenile kids and teenagers that come from rough backgrounds.
