Each of the three McCown children – ranging in ages from 6 to 16 – suffers from debilitating ailments, including Complex IV Mitochondrial Disease and aftereffects of Uterine Shaken Syndrome, the latter of which was sustained in a hit-and-run accident.
The McCown family is in need of a home remodel to accommodate the special needs of each child.
“We are honored to welcome Blake Sims after his impressive senior season and are proud to align with him to benefit the McCowns,” said Roslyn Rodda, The Outlet Shops of Grand River manager of marketing and tourism. “We encourage community members – Alabama fans or otherwise – to come out to support this deserving family.”
Sims completed 252 of 391 passing attempts for 3,487 yards, 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions as a senior at Alabama in 2014. He led the Crimson Tide to a 12-2 record and the first College Football Playoff.
