About 2nd&7

Mission

To promote reading by providing free books and positive role models to kids in need while encouraging young athletes of the community to pay it forward.

The 2nd & 7 Foundation was founded in 1999 by three former OSU football players – Luke Fickell, Ryan Miller and Mike Vrabel - who wanted to continue to give back to their community. Since 1999, The 2nd & 7 Foundation has given away over 400,000 books to kids in need all across the country.

Tackling Illiteracy

The 'Tackling Illiteracy' reading program began in central Ohio and is now being implemented in communities all over the nation. As a part of this program, college or high school student-athletes visit 2nd graders in local elementary schools to read to them, talk about the importance of their education and give every child a free book to take home. The focus is on schools with high populations of students on free or reduced lunch plans or communities that need it the most. A donation of just $25 allows us to ship 120 books to a school anywhere in the country.
