A short but nice story on a football player who’s making a difference.

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS, Pa. – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is helping a northwestern Pennsylvania police department fight crime.

The Cambridge Springs police department used $8,000 from the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation to care for and equip a new 2-year-old German shepherd. The department paid $11,000 for the dog, which was raised in a community fundraiser.

Roethlisberger’s foundation provides funding to train, equip and purchase police dogs. The foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for service dogs used by police and fire departments in Pennsylvania, Roethlisberger’s home state of Ohio and elsewhere.

We give Ben Roethlisberger four paws up!
