The Tackle MS with Alex Tanney Fund was created in 2018 to support organizations within the field of multiple sclerosis.

Alex Tanney is entering his 9th NFL season and is currently with the New York Giants. Alex and his wife Rebecca both come from rural Illinois towns (Lexington and Monmouth) and cherish the close relationships they have with their families. Eight years ago, when Alex was starting his NFL career, his sister-in-law Julia was beginning to experience new symptoms which became the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Over the past eight years, Alex has seen the impact of multiple sclerosis in his family and Julia’s life, and he hopes to use this fund to support and bring awareness to the disease.

To help contribute to the Tackle MS with Alex Tanney Fund, Alex will be hosting a fundraising event June 20, 2020 as an additional way to support this cause. For the 2020 event, there will be a youth football camp (grades 1-8) and a charity golf outing. To find out more information about the event, visit the event site.

Alex Tanney and his family appreciate the support of all donors.
