- Colton Underwood -
A small town guy leaving a legacy
Colton Underwood grew up in Washington, Illinois. Active in football and other sports throughout his childhood, Colton learned early on the value in team work, discipline and community. While Colton played football in the NFL he established the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation to carry on his passion for community. The Foundation serves to provide resources for research and support of people living with Cystic Fibrosis and encourage youth participation in athletics.
Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system, is a cause close to Colton’s heart – his cousin was diagnosed with CF at birth. Click here to learn more about why Colton started this foundation. >
Today, through the Legacy Project Colton is traveling to every one of the 50 US states to deliver 50 AflfoVests to 50 people with Cystic Fibrosis. These next generation mobile airway clearance treatments allow people to move around freely while getting their treatment instead of sitting still while tied to heavy equipment with hoses and cords.
