On September 9, Brett Greenwood, former Hawkeye football player, collapsed during a routine workout. Brett had developed an abnormal heart rhythm, which caused his heart to stop, resulting in serious neurological injuries. Brett is recovering and working hard to regain his strength and mobility.

We are thankful to the many, many people from across the country who have reached out to us.

Because so many of you expressed a desire to support Brett in a tangible way, we have established the Brett Greenwood Foundation. The donations made to the Brett Greenwood Foundation will go into a fund that will be used to support the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, where Brett was treated, and the Hawkeye Athletics Department in the form of an Endowed Scholarship in Brett's name.

Our heartfelt thanks for your continued support and prayers.

The Greenwood Family
