Joe Burrow Pays Mental Health Treatment Bills for 20 Families

    The Joe Burrow Foundation recently paid the mental health treatment bills for families at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

    Some of the most respected NFL players are the ones who show genuine interest in their communities. Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow has earned the respect of many. His compassion and humility make him one of the most admirable players in the NFL today.  Being one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL is an amazing accomplishment for the young athlete.

    Joe Burrow Foundation Pays Mental Health Treatment Bills for 20 Families

    Off the field, Burrow is just as remarkable. His foundation, known as the Joe Burrow Foundation, was established in 2022 to help local families in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the state of Louisiana. Recently, the foundation paid the mental health treatment bills of 20 families at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

    Burrow’s father explained the kind gesture in an interview on The Mental Game Podcast. “Their families had trouble paying the bills, so we started out thinking, ‘Well, let’s see how many we can pay.’ There were about 20 of them, and we just couldn’t decide, so we basically paid for 20 families.”

    Burrow’s Previous Charity Work

    The Joe Burrow Foundation has been involved in numerous other projects. Earlier this year, they created a new grant program to help underprivileged children, which raised up to $50,000. This grant program was designed to help those impacted by mental health and hunger issues.

    After highlighting the importance of mental health and hunger issues in his Heisman speech in 2019, Burrow established the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund, serving his hometown Athens, Ohio, and surrounding areas. In 2022, over $1.3 million was raised for the fund.  There is no doubt that Burrow will continue to make a positive impact in the community through both organizations.

    Burrow Looking To Return to Super Bowl in 2023

    In regards to his actions on the field, Burrow is now steering the Bengals in the right direction after the team endured several losing seasons. Being the true underdogs of the 2021-2022 season, it was a remarkable accomplishment for Burrow to lead Cincinnati to the Super Bowl, despite falling short against the Los Angeles Rams.

    With the Bengals having so much talent, they have a solid chance of going back to the Super Bowl in 2023. The road won’t be easy, however, as the AFC is loaded with talented teams such as the Chiefs, Ravens, Bills, Dolphins, Chargers, and Jaguars. The Jets are also expected to be better this season with the addition of Aaron Rodgers. Fortunately for Burrow, he has a roster full of talent as well.
