Michael Strahan, defensive end for the 2007 Super Bowl Champion New York Giants, and co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael and Natasha Bedingfield, the British-born singer/song writer will help kick-off a $1 million fundraising campaign designed to assist CareOne/HealthBridge employees and their families, as well as researchers, in the fight against cancer. Strahan, the newest member of the Good Morning America team and co-host of Fox NFL Sunday, and Bedingfield, the award-winning performer, will join top R&B artist Ne-Yo at the July 27th event at Fenway Park for which Strahan will serve as master of ceremonies. Launched by Daniel E. Straus, Founder, Chairman and CEO of CareOne Management, the campaign and fund were developed in support of HealthBridge executive Dan Grimes, 42, of Carver, Massachusetts, who has been diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer.
Widely recognized for his commitment to a “hands-on” approach to philanthropy, Strahan contributes his time and talents to diverse organizations, working with children, members of the armed services and veterans.
“I am inspired by CareOne’s efforts to support one of its own. On Sunday, the company will be raising more than funds at Fenway, they will be raising hope. It is an honor to take part in this event and I look forward to my time in Boston,” said Strahan.
An activist whose charitable work takes her around the globe, Bedingfield, the recipient of numerous industry honors and accolades for a string of hits including “Unwritten” and “Pocketful of Sunshine,” was eager to join forces with CareOne.
“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer,” said Bedingfield. “And I welcome the chance to contribute to this amazing event through my music. The dollars raised will make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families that is real and measurable. I am so proud to be part of this caring community.”
