Fam First Foundation joined forces with FloReal Sports Foundation.
Marshawn Lynch and Joshua Johnson were in London to help launch the event for both foundations.
Friday 23rd June was an exciting day for the FloReal Sports Foundation team. After month’s of hard work and preparation, the day finally arrived. The launch of the Fam First Foundation in London. The foundation that was set up by Oakland Raiders star Marshawn Lynch and the New York Giants Quarterback Joshua Johnson with the event being hosted in London at the West Ham United Foundation facility.
The day consisted of school children from around the local area coming down and trying their hand at a number of Football drills run by the West Ham Foundation coaches. There were also a number of American Football drills run by the London Blitz coaches. Marshawn and Joshua got involved with the session as well, giving the children plenty of advice on how to make it in the NFL.
The event was a successful showcase of both foundations and was capped off with a fantastic display of ‘Soccer’ skills and tricks by 2 x world freestyle champion Sean Garnier. Sean spent some time with the NFL superstars, showing them some of his highly difficult tricks which has made him a Youtube star! Marshawn and Joshua were keen to impress and didn’t hold back, showing Sean some of their tricks shots too. Most notably Joshua’s half way line quarterback throw, which crashed against the crossbar on his first attempt.
We would like to thank the Fam First Foundation. Marshawn Lynch and Joshua Johnson for bringing the foundation over the London. Thank you to West Ham United Foundation for hosting the event. Finally Sean Garnier for the fantastic entertainment he brought to the finale of the event.
We go again on Saturday 1st July, bringing Miami Dolphins star Jay Ajayi and his NFL camp to Hackney London. For more information on that event, please click here.
