Tyler Polumbus works to enrich the lives of children through family, faith and personal growth.
Tyler has a simple philosophy about giving back to the communities he loves so much.
Tyler is a homegrown success story of Denver, so keeping a focus of the program on Denver is that much more important to him. However, of equal importance is to give back to the communities in which his NFL team resides. From their own upbringing, both Liz and Tyler fully appreciate the importance of all three elements – family, faith and personal growth – in the healthy development of children. Moreover, Tyler realizes that through his program the children will enrich their lives as much as they will theirs. He sums it up best when he says,
“’Growing Strong Together’ fits our program because this will be a growing process for everyone involved – Liz, the kids and I! We are very excited about TKO!”
“My wife and I have always had a strong desire to give back to the community. God has blessed us and put us in this amazing position to start our lives in the NFL. I am getting a chance to do what many dream of in playing for the Redskins and it is important to us that we take full advantage of all the opportunities provided from being a professional athlete. We have a chance to reach out and influence children’s lives right here in the cities I care the most about. We can’t imagine a more exciting opportunity. We hope that through our program we are able to bring even the slightest bit of joy to each kid we meet. We know that every time we show up at the hospital, every time we throw a party for the kids, and every time we are able to bring a child to a game our lives positively impacted. We grow from these kids, and we hope that they will grow from us!”
