Sounds like someone is finally on the side of Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, as according to this piece below, a couple of charities are sticking with the QB, that being Make-a-Wish and Ronald McDonald House:
Despite being suspended by the NFL for six games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still being backed by two charities, according to Alex Marvez of Foxsports.com.
Make-a-Wish and Ronald McDonald House told Foxsports.com that Roethlisberger can participate in their activities.
The president of the Pittsburgh Make-a-Wish branch told Foxsports.com that she was “heartbroken and very surprised” about the Steelers’ QB’s alleged actions, but would still have a working relationship with him.
“Our relationship with Ben is exactly as it has always been. Nothing has changed,” Judith Stone said. “It’s the child’s wish. Of all the wishes in the whole world, if they want to meet Big Ben, that’s the wish.”
He also is the honorary local chairman of Ronald McDonald House Charities, FOXSports.com reported.
“He is so good with our kids,” executive director Barbara Reed Martin told FOXSports.com. “When he talks to them, he makes them feel as if they were the only person in the room.”
