New York, New York, September 8, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Former foster child, Rob Garris is the only athlete in the history of professional sports, who came back after 27 years, from “amateur” to “pro” to support his charity “Throwaway Kids,” which is a foundation that advocates for foster children and reunite families.
It is an honor and pleasure to work with Mr. Garris. He is a true champion, both in and outside of the ring. His passion and dedication to bringing awareness to the issues of homelessness as it relates to our foster care system, is second to none and has positioned himself as a leading authority on the subject. Mr. Garris has an astounding track record of service that dates back over ten years. “Unlike other advocates in the field, Mr. Garris has made the ultimate sacrifice by risking his life fighting at the pro level, all for the sake of bringing attention to the harsh realities of what our children are facing everyday being in the foster care system in America,” said Sports Agent Allen L. Ellison.
