When God blesses you it is meant to show his wonderous works.
Former pro-football player Warrick Dunn
(pictured far right) brought excitement to the NFL as a running back for
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons. Although considered
undersized for his position, Dunn was selected for three Pro Bowls and
was the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year in 1997 before retiring in 2008.
Continuing to work in service and furthering honoring the memory of
his mother, Dunn launched Betty’s Hope in 2012. The program helps
children who have lost a parent deal with the grief and depression similar
to what Dunn grappled with as a teenager when he and his five siblings
lost their mother to violent crime. Betty’s Hope services are free of charge
and include counseling, parent/caregiver support and training among other offerings.
Dunn published an autobiography, “Running for My Life,” in 2008.
The book detailed the struggles he faced in losing his mother at a young age,
and how he combated depression.
Dunn also recently completed his graduate studies,
obtaining his MBA from Emory University last year.
