Hospital honors former Michigan football star Charles Woodson with 'Woodson Day'

By Staff

Former Michigan star, Heisman Trophy winner and current Super Bowl champion Charles Woodson will be honored Thursday for his work and contributions to C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

Woodson will receive the first Mott Champions for Children Award at 10:30 a.m. Thursday and then visit patients on "Woodson Day" at Mott. Woodson donated $2 million to Mott in 2009 as part of The Charles Woodson Clinical Research Fund. Woodson and former Mott patient Max Merget will throw out the first pitch Wednesday at the Detroit Tigers-Seattle Mariners game.

Great story, about a classy alum. Makes me feel should. "Our" Charles is the REAL Sir Charles.

In today's era of outrageous athlete behavior, run-ins with the law, greed, and bad sportsmanship, it's wonderful to see people like Charles Woodson not only act with class, but give back generously. As a fellow Michigan alumnus, I'm extremely proud to have Charles as part of the "family".
