PRLog - May 18, 2011 - HOUSTON -- HOUSTON – All-Pro NFL running back Arian Foster, of the Houston Texans needs your vote to help at-risk kids stay out of trouble and find success.  As part of the GOOD Reinventing the Outdoors Contest, Foster is competing against five other celebrities vying to win a $50,000 grant for the nonprofit of their choice. Foster is working to secure the grant for the Boys & Girls Club of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Foster attended his local Boys & Girls Club in Albuquerque as a child and credits the experience for keeping him out of trouble and paving the way to his NFL career. “I always enjoyed spending afternoons at the Boys & Girls Club, and I’m excited for this opportunity to give back to the same club where I played football and had a blast with my friends.”

Today the Boys & Girls Club of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho serves nearly 1,500 kids, many from low and poverty income level households. From homework assistance to physical fitness activities, the Club keeps kids active, outdoors and happy.
