NASCAR and 13 other professional sports leagues announced Monday (May 4) the launch of The Real Heroes Project, an initiative dedicated to honor healthcare workers battling against COVID-19.
Other notable professional athletes include Aaron Judge, Drew Brees and National Hockey League legend Wayne Gretzky.
Each league’s representatives will honor a healthcare hero from their community and put their hero’s name on their jersey or uniform. They will also share a thank you message on social media using #TheRealHeroes.
The multi-league public service announcement will debut Wednesday on leagues and team platforms.
