Denard Span Pays Tribute to Jeremiah Program

Denard Span Pays Tribute to Jeremiah Program

When Denard Span considered getting involved with a charity, he chose Jeremiah Program because, in his words, “It just sounded perfect. I wanted to do something I could relate to.” His comment relates to both the fact he was raised by a single mother and that he respects Jeremiah for providing opportunities for single mothers but also asking them to work toward their success.

Span talks extensively about his work with Jeremiah Program in a recent interview with the Washington Times. Read the full story about the former Minnesota Twins star (now playing for the Washington Nationals) here.
