Big Cause, Big Heart, Big Ben (and Other Steelers)

Watch how a random act of kindness came together from a family tragedy and how several big athletes discovered The Little Fox Foundation

There's a lot of buzz right now surrounding a young man who made quite an impression with the Pittsburgh Steelers while visiting training camp with his dad this week. That young man is 4 year-old Luke Stern.

Here's the tweet from mom that got the attention of staffers at training camp:

They immediately sought out Luke and his dad, Dan. They found them, and welcomed them in to meet with some big names who also love to do good things: Ben Roethlisberger, Juju Smith-Schuster, and James Conner.

After the death of their son Toby to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) , they started a foundation to help fulfill donation requests for Owlet Smart Socks. It's a device that monitors a sleeping infant's heart rate and oxygen levels and alerts if there is a danger.
