ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)Charles Woodson(notes) wants to be known as more than a football player. Donating $2 million to the new University of Michigan Mott Childrens Hospital and Womens Hospital gives him a chance to do that. The school announced Woodsons gift on Thanksgiving before he played for the Green Bay Packers against the Detroit Lions. Woodsons money will support pediatric research by The Charles Woodson Clinical Research Fund in the $754-million, 1.1-million square foot hospital slated to open in 2012. He hopes to attract the worlds best researchers who want to help children with cancer, heart disease, kidney disorders and autism. Woodson said during a visit to Ann Arbor earlier this month that becoming a father motivated him to make the gift.

Heck of a pro, too.
Class act by #21. May God Bless him and his Family.
As a Spartan I thank Mr. Woodson.
As a human I thank Mr. Woodson!
I’ve never been good at “money” and that is probably why I don’t have a lot of it but, one of the main reasons I would like to have a lot of it is for doing things like this. God bless all those that give like this, in large amounts and small.
Nice story about Woodson. Saw him play at the high school level at Fremont Ross HS in Ohio, when he was named Mr. Football. Woodson is the second best player I have seen at the high school level in 45 years of watching football (the best HS player I ever saw was Chris Spielman).
Woodson has always been a class act: in College and in the NFL.
At this moment he's killing the Lions.
A one man wrecking crew in that Ohio State game his junior year.
No doubt. He plays with some other fellow named Hawk whom is a wrecking crew in his own right :)
Well, for what its worth, the Lions are so bad they had to hire someone to kill the turkey for the post game dinner.......
Good job Hildy,
Thanks for a good positive story.
Second upper in just a few stories.
Another good on of Shaq too.
He’s a “good Joe” for that...
