Colin Kaepernick Continues Charitable Work for Camp Taylor

Posted Jun 17, 2014

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback continues to raise awareness for Camp Taylor, a charity that supports young people and families of children with heart disease.



Colin Kaepernick continues to raise awareness for Camp Taylor, a charity that offers several programs for young people and families of children with heart disease.

The cause is special to the San Francisco 49ers quarterback as his parents lost two children to heart disease at a young age.

Kaepernick helped bring even more attention to the foundation's efforts by hosting his second annual "Against All Odds" golf tournament, an event that included an appearance from teammate Bruce Miller.

Kaepernick has been a big supporter of Camp Taylor ever since he joined the NFL in 2011. The 49ers signal-caller often visits Camp Taylor's "Heart Camp" and he continues to help raise funds for the charity.

"Ultimately I haven't been through things that they have," Kaepernick told the San Jose Mercury News. "So for me, I try to support them as much as I can and show them they're great kids."

Several noteworthy tweets were shared from the event in Modesto. Take a look at what Kaepernick was up to during the pre-minicamp charity outing.
