New Cowboy defensive tackle Cedric Thornton was racing against the odds, not on a football field, but as a celebrity attendee at Albertson Tom Thumb’s Stars of Texas … Racing Against the Odds gala, hosted by the American Diabetes Association North Texas.
The fund raiser, which took place April 21, boasted over 950 people, raising over $335k for research, advocacy and education in North Texas.
Amy and Jay Novacek, honorary chairs welcomed Thornton who is part of an advocacy campaign called Team Tackle, an initiative that brings together 45 current, former and upcoming professional football players – representing all 32 professional teams in the country – with the Association to raise awareness of diabetes and prediabetes.
This was the 19th year for the Stars of Texas fund raiser.
