Kenneth Jennings sits next to the Gridiron Alliance booth at Soldier Field in Chicago before a Chicago Bears game against the Green Bay Packers. Gridiron Alliance helps promote awareness to spinal cord injuries caused by a football injury and was holding a silent auction and a raffle to Chicago Bears products including a Jay Cutler autographed helmet for the raffle. Jennings, 38, was 16-years-old when he was hurt playing football in 1988 at Simeon High School. He is one of the former players associated with Gridiron Alliance.
