Colin Kaepernick Spends 32nd Birthday Feeding the Needy


We all face adversity in life, and it's often said that the way one deals with these challenges is what truly defines a person. Colin Kaepernick is a good example of this: the pro quarterback has been sidelined now for three seasons, after controversy surrounding his decision to "take a knee" during the national anthem to protest police violence. But Kaepernick isn't letting the NFL slow him down–far from it.

Along with his Know Your Rights Camp Foundation, this past Sunday, Kap spent his 32nd birthday helping to feed the homeless in Oakland, CA. He and his group handed out backpacks filled with snacks, along with personal items like socks and soap. And this isn't the first time the football star has spent his birthday helping those in need. Back in 2016, he hosted the first Know Your Rights Camp event on his birthday, where he helped educate kids on their rights when engaging with law enforcement.

“This is just the beginning,” he told reporters from the Washington Post at the event. “What we’ve done here today in Oakland, we want to do all over the country....we want to show them how much we love and value them.” To find out more, see the full feature at The Root.
