Nick's new foundation

Nick and Christina Markakis just unveiled their Right Side Foundation, which has been formed to help impact the lives of distressed children throughout Maryland. The foundation already has scheduled a charity fun run in August and Nick's "Fun for 21" program, which will take a group of 21 kids on an outing each month.

"After signing my contract and all the things that have gone on in my life and all the things I have been blessed with, we want to give back to the community,'' Markakis said during an afternoon news conference at Camden Yards.

During the news conference, Markakis also announced that he and Christina are planning to move their permanent residence from Georgia to the Baltimore area next season.
