EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Vikings defensive end Brian Robison on Tuesday announced formation of his "Reel 'Em In" Foundation.
The charitable organization's mission will be to positively impact those in need by forming partnerships with existing organizations in Minnesota and his native state of Texas.
Brian and his wife, Jayme, selected what he called a "remarkable organization," K9s4Cops, for a year-long partnership in 2016.
Earlier this spring veteran DE Brian Robison invited the VEN camera crew out on his fishing boat in his home-state of Texas.
K9s4Cops provides dogs to law enforcement agencies, school districts and college campuses that are adept at helping police make arrests by detecting narcotics and weapons and has placed nearly 100 dogs in 68 agencies and 12 schools across 28 states in the past four years.
"Both Jayme and I have personally been touched by this organization and are excited to announce our partnership," Robison said. "Our foundation will continue to research and evaluate organizations and groups on an annual basis that are identified as struggling and are in desperate need of our help."
Robison's foundation will host two annual fishing tournaments to benefit the recipient organization, one in Minnesota and one in Texas. The first is scheduled April 9-10 on Lake Fork in Texas.
