Indy Blue Crew Selects Head Coach Frank Reich’s kNot Today Foundation as Charitable Partner for 2022-23 NFL Season
Every year the Blue Crew Fan Club, a network of hundreds of proud fans, comes together to support the Indianapolis Colts. Members have been gathering since 1993, and the club is now considered one of the premier fan clubs across the NFL. But their love for the Colts extends beyond the football field. The club is passionate about positively impacting the greater Indianapolis community by creating opportunities and partnerships where Colts fans can give back.
The Blue Crew is proud to partner with Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Frank Reich’s kNot Today Foundation for the 2022-2023 NFL season. The mission of kNot Today is to end the sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking of children. Donations raised during the season will be used to further the education and training of children, educators, and healthcare workers across Indiana to better identify and report sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking.
“When we came to Indianapolis in 2018, the crossroads of America, and learned the scale of this issue in our own backyard, we knew we had to be intentional about fighting this darkness with our time, platform and resources,” said Frank Reich. “We are humbled to be the beneficiary of The Blue Crew’s efforts to protect children across Indianapolis and to be a part of a city and fanbase that is actively fostering a strong community.”
“This is a dark issue. It’s hard for anyone to wrap their heads around adults harming children in this way,” said Brian Robinson, Blue Crew director. “But we have seen tremendous commitment from our members when we use this club to positively impact the city. It takes a team to tackle an issue as big and as important as this one, and we are honored to come alongside kNot Today this season.”
This year, kNot Today is on a mission to ensure prevention education on sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking is available in every public school in Indiana. Educators account for 52% of all child abuse reports, more than any other profession, due to their proximity and familiarity with their students. But resource limitations make annual education a challenge for schools and training programs to support. Donors like you are supporting access to education for 60,000 students in 2022-23 through kNot Today’s prevention education program.
