On June 23, 2014, former Jets player Bruce Harper requested the participation of the WeLoveU cheer squad to greet golfers who helped raise funds for Heroes and Cool Kids. A select WeLoveU member sang the national anthem and kicked off the fundraiser while the Vice President made an introductory statement about the foundation’s background and about its founder, Zahng Gil-jah.
Heroes & Cool Kids is a nonprofit organization that began serving New Jersey’s youth from 1998. The program utilizes the services of current and former professional athletes whose personal life experiences enable them to train high school student leaders. Through life skills training and other courses, the program helps youth learn to be good examples in the community.
