Kevin Everett kicks off new foundation in Houston

Former NFL player Kevin Everett on Friday launched a new foundation aimed at helping people like him, who have suffered a sports related spinal injury. The Beaumont native launched the Kevin Everett Foundation at a luncheon today in southwest Houston. The foundation will help people with spinal cord injuries sustained through sports.

Everett was left paralyzed after taking a hit during an NFL game in September, but has made a full recovery.

"The medical bills are very expensive and I mean, it's hard for some low income families to afford to get a wheelchair for their family member that's injured or something like that," Everett told us. "So that's why I feel it's on me to start this foundation so I can help out with those things."
