DISC was proud to again support Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. with his annual Fitz’s Supper Club Celebrities at Your Service dinner that took place Monday, August 25, 2014. The Arizona Cardinal’s star wide receiver makes a difference on the field and in the community. Fitzgerald and his teammates wore aprons and served tables at Dominick’s Steakhouse in Scottsdale to raise money for his charities to help fight breast cancer and to provide programs for inner city youth, via the First Down Fund. Last year $250,000 was raised and he hopes to top that this year. We congratulate you, Larry, on your impact on and off the field!

“I wouldn’t be anything if it weren’t for this community. They’ve appreciated me. They’ve supported me. They’ve uplifted me. I just try to do everything that I can to make sure that they know that I care and appreciate them for everything they’ve done.” – Larry Fitzgerald, Jr.

Some of the biggest names in sports traded in their helmets and uniforms for plates and aprons at Morton’s to help raise funds for Larry Fitzgerald Jr’s charities.

Over the past three years, this event series has donated nearly $3 million to worthwhile organizations.

What a fun day! Over 275 people showed up for the first annual “We’ve Got Your Back” Race in Scottsdale on February 8, 2014. Race proceeds benefitted The Spinal Research Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding new cures for those suffering from spinal disorders. Patients who have overcome their back or neck pain received special “Spinal Champion” tees to honor them on race day.

Thank you so much to the race sponsors and volunteers who made this day possible. We look forward to another great race in February 2015!
