CAROL STREAM, ILL. (April 20, 2020) – Nick Foles, Chicago Bears quarterback and author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Overcoming the Odds, has announced that he and his wife, Tori, have launched the Foles Believe Foundation (@folesbelieve and www.folesbelieve.org).
In its initial action, Foles Believe is making nine grants to food banks across the country, including two in the Chicago area. Grant recipients include: Central Texas Food Bank, Feeding Northeast Florida, Feeding Texas, Food Bank of South Jersey, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Lakeview Pantry, Mariners Church, Orange County Rescue Mission, and Philabundance.
Nick Foles, who was acquired via trade by the Chicago Bears from the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this spring, is the 2018 Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. A graduate of the University of Arizona, Nick was drafted by the Eagles in the third round of the 2012 draft. In 2013, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to post a perfect passer rating (158.3), and to throw seven touchdowns in a single game, earning him a spot in the Pro Bowl, and Offensive MVP honors. Foles played one season in St. Louis (2015) and one in Kansas City (2016), before returning to the Eagles in 2017. On February 4, 2018, Foles led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. He and his wife, Tori, have a daughter named Lily and a Golden Doodle named Henry. The couple is expecting their second child later this year.
