Raiders player donates his 18k dollar game check to 4 year old girl

Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Menelik Watson donated his Week 16 game check to the family of a 4-year-old girl in need.

Born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, Ava Urrea was able to visit the Raiders last week, thanks to Jay Glazer’s Touchdown Dreams program.

The 4-year-old, who has undergone more than 14 procedures due to her condition, received a signed helmet and autographed footballs from players, and led the team as captain for a day.

Well today, Watson handed her family his game check worth 18k dollars.

This is awesome, You deserved to win Raiders (and Im a Bills fan)!
