SOUTH BEND — Former Notre Dame Football standouts Brady Quinn and Chinedum Ndukwe plan to visit Memorial Children’s Hospital Monday afternoon, according to a release from the hospital.
The two will visit Memorial’s pediatric and pediatric intensive care units, as well as patients in the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology program.
The two have a longstanding friendship that dates back to the seventh grade when they began playing football together for the first time. They went on to play together until 2007 when they were selected by different teams in the NFL draft.
Quinn is currently a quarterback for the Denver Broncos and Ndukwe is a safety for the Cincinnati Broncos.
Quinn and Ndukwe will arrive at the hospital at 1:30 p.m. Monday.
This is very representative of Brady and Chinedum’s work in giving back to the community; something instilled in their DNA, brought to the surface by their faith and university. Undoubtedly, the two are together for the College Football Hall of Fame’s Gridiron Legends Luncheon Series on June 21st.
