Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson often says his catchphrase of “no time to sleep” and when he does, he often means it. The NFL may be several months away from kicking off, but the 2020 Walter Payton Man of the Year winner’s charity knows no offseason.
Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara will be hosting a COVID-19 vaccine television special on Sunday, April 18 called “Roll Up Your Sleeves.” The purpose will be to raise awareness for the vaccine, encourage Americans to get theirs when they can and to help combat misinformation regarding the vaccine.
The Wilson’s won’t be alone. They will be joined by a star-studded cast of hosts and guest speakers, such as President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, Shaquille O’Neal, and even an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci conducted by actor Matthew McConaughey, among others.
Russell Wilson clearly feels called to do his part to help people through the COVID-19 pandemic, and his work during the height of it was what helped him win the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. Wilson donated $1 million of his own wealth to Feeding America to help with food insecurity across the nation.
The “Roll Up Your Sleeves” special will air Monday night at 7:00 p.m. PT/ET on NBC.
