On Saturday, June 19, Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman will host the 4th Annual Celebrity Gridiron Challenge.

There will be lots of games and activities for the entire family including a performance by the Jesse White Tumbling Team.  Fans of all ages will enjoy watching on-field scrimmages with pro football players and will have a chance to meet members of the Chicago Bears.  A donor registration drive will be held in The Cornerstone Fan Zone where there will also be games and activities for children.

Secretary of State Jesse White will present Charles Tillman and his wife Jackie with a signed Proclamation issued by Governor Quinn declaring June 19th as The Tillman Family Organ/Tissue Donor Awareness Day.

The Tillmans became involved in raising awareness for organ/tissue donation after their daughter Tiana received a lifesaving heart transplant at just three months old.  Tiana was born with cardiomyopathy and needed a heart transplant in order to save her life.  She is now a healthy 3-year-old.

The festivities run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Lake Zurich High School located at 320 Church Street in Lake Zurich.  Attendance is free. Click here for additional event details.
