The Seattle Seahawks expect big things from quarterback Russell Wilson in his second year as the team’s starter. Now thanks to a partnership with Russell Investments, Wilson has even more incentive to rack up as many touchdowns as possible this season for the Seahawks.
Wilson and Russell Investments, an asset management firm headquartered in Seattle, have partnered together to created a charitable program entitled “Invested with Russell.”
For each touchdown – running or passing – scored by Wilson this season, Russell Investments will donate $2,000 to Wilson’s charitable foundation. Wilson’s foundation supports youth activities for communities in need. The actual charities that will benefit from the donations will be announced at the end of the season.
Wilson accounted for 30 touchdowns as rookie last season with 26 passing touchdowns and four rushing touchdowns. If he repeats that performance this year, he’ll raise $60,000 toward his foundation.
