Jarrett and Brittney Payton joined Ryan and Val to reflect on memories of their beloved father, NFL star and Chicago Bears legend, No. 34, Walter Payton.
The Walter & Connie Payton Foundation (WCPF)
Walter Payton started this foundation as a way to provide for neglected children in the state of Illinois. His wife, Connie and children, Brittney and Jarrett, continue his mission of caring for underprivileged children and giving them the chance at a brighter future. And each year the foundation, working closely with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), commits to giving gifts to the neediest children in the state. 16,000 children each year receive holiday gifts through the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation. A feat that could not be accomplished without help and donations from the community.
