By Melanie Maxwell

Some Michigan football fans might be doing some double takes around Ann Arbor this weekend as some familiar faces may be walking around town. The seventh annual Brian Griese/Steve Hutchinson/Charles Woodson Champions for Children's Hearts Weekend is being held Friday-Sunday and some prestigious Michigan football alumni are rallying behind the cause of raising money for The Charles Woodson Clinical Research Fund to benefit the new C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and the U-M Congenital Heart Center.

The weekend's fund raising festivities kicked off with the "Mott Takeover" telethon at Sports Talk 1050 WTKA on Friday and will include many more events including a golf outing on Sunday.

It's very good to see former Michigan football players take part in this. It speaks volumes for the program.
