Former Pittsburgh Steeler Kendall Simmons Visits Erie

Nick Pold and Kendall Simmons

On Monday, April 29th many local families had the opportunity to meet NFL Player and two-time Super Bowl champion Kendall Simmons.  Simmons shared his personal journey of being diagnosed with T1D in his second year of playing professional ball and went on to have a very successful football career.  Kendall spent time with each attendee and encouraged and motivated them not to let diabetes get in the way of anything. Each attendee had the opportunity to get a picture with Kendall and to wear his super bowl ring. In addition all who attended had a chance to win an autographed football and congratulations to Nick Pold (pictured above) for being the lucky winner.  A special thanks to Novo Nordisk for bringing Kendall to Erie and to Scott Enterprises for hosting the event.
