03 Aug Humanitarian Trip To Kenya “An Amazing Experience” For Seahawks Legend Warren Moon

Growing up in Los Angeles, Warren Moon was regularly reminded by his mother, Pat, about the importance of education. It’s a message that stuck with Moon from his days at the University of Washington through his Hall of Fame NFL career. For Moon, football was the path to a college education, but he realizes not everyone has an athletic scholarship in their future, so in 1989, he started the Crescent Moon Foundation, which is dedicated to “providing support for educational pursuits that will benefit children most in need who have displayed a commitment to their community, as well as other charitable causes.”

Moon couldn’t have known it when he started his foundation, but that commitment to education would eventually take him to Kenya this summer, where in addition to helping build a school, Moon worked with the Unstoppable Foundation to build housing and a well to provide fresh water for a village in Bogani, Kenya.
