  • 38 photos
  • Chris Long, who has been an active supporter of many charitable initiatives during his time with the St. Louis Rams, launched The Chris Long Foundation at Morton’s Steakhouse in Clayton to raise money for “Waterboys,” the Foundation’s signature initiative, which is dedicated to building wells for communities in East Africa. After visiting East Africa and being exposed to their extreme poverty and lack of access to clean water, Chris Long was inspired to help address this dire need. He is partnering with WorldServe International, a nonprofit based in Missouri that is a leading provider of clean water wells in sub-Saharan Africa, to assist with the project. He has also recruited other NFL players from around the league to serve as fundraising representatives, with the goal of building 32 wells to represent the 32 NFL teams. Spotted in the crowd were Howie Long, Chris’ father and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Gregg Williams, St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator, James Laurinaitis, St. Louis Rams linebacker, hockey hall of famer, Brett Hull and Joe Buck, sportscaster.
