Tom Coughlin, the Super Bowl-winning coach of the New York Giants, and previously of the Jacksonville Jaguars, was inspired by tragedy to launch a foundation to help kids with cancer and their families.

Coach Coughlin was the head coach at Boston College where he had a player, Jay McGillis, who succumbed to leukemia while on the team. The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation was named in part for this brave player.

Growing from helping 20 families in 2005, to helping 663 families in 2014, the Jay Fund is accelerating its impact. In October, the Foundation raised $1.4 million for families in the New York/New Jersey area families.
