LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (10 February 2022) – With the Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams, the Matthew Foundation welcomes people of all ages and abilities to Super Fest, an inclusive Big Game LVI weekend experience. Join NFL alumni, Rams Cheerleaders, and celebrity guests for the 7th Annual Super Fest, a fun-packed, inclusive football and cheer camp, this Saturday, February 12, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Edward Vincent Jr. Park in Inglewood, California.
This year’s event will feature appearances by Los Angeles Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco; actor Sylvia Brooks-Griffin (Zylan Brooks); Princess Sarah Culberson, author and humanitarian whose royal roots are the inspiration for a forthcoming Disney movie; Jarvis Sam, Nike’s Vice President of Global Diversity & Inclusion; William Kenney, a young performer with Down syndrome; and other special guests.
This one-of-a-kind experience is held annually on the day before the pro football Big Game in each host city. The two-hour-long skills clinic culminates in a one-hour game day experience for all participants, complete with live performances of the National Anthem, football scrimmages, and cheer performances. To make the event as enjoyable and accessible as possible, registrants have the option of participating as a Football Player or Cheerleader.
Every year since 2016, NFL teams, media outlets, businesses, disability agencies, hospitals, and community partners have rallied around this important community event. The effort has been spearheaded by The Matthew Foundation, a private operating charitable foundation that strives to make a meaningful impact for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities one program at a time. The Matthew Foundation closely collaborates with regional disability advocacy organizations to ensure it meets the needs of the community. This year, the foundation is proud to partner with the Disability Rights Legal Center, Down Syndrome International, the University of California, Irvine, and other remarkable organizations across Southern California to bring Super Fest to Los Angeles.
