Rodney Peete, Jr. (RJ)
Written By: Lacey Wallen
Have you heard about HollyRod Foundation? Founded over 20 years ago by former NFL quarterback, Rodney Peete and his wife, actress, Holly Robinson Peete, HollyRod provides support to individuals and families living with two very challenging diagnoses: autism and Parkinson’s Disease. Holly’s father battled Parkinson’s Disease for 20 years prior to his death, and the oldest of the Peetes’ four children, RJ, was diagnosed with autism at an early age. HollyRod initially focused on those living with Parkinson’s Disease. The expansion to include autism happened after RJ’s diagnosis. Through HollyRod Foundation, the Peetes use their fame and the platforms fame provides to raise awareness for these two conditions. Check out the HollyRod Foundation’s website for more information.
On a more personal note…Her Sports Corner wishes continued success to RJ in is position with the LA Dodgers!
