When these two Original Dawgs start barking, great things happen for the fans and the community alike. The Original Dawgs came together last October for a 30th Anniversary Celebration to raise money for the Healing Dawgs, a non-profit foundation, founded by Earnest Byner. The fans were able to be part of very special tribute to have Marty Schottenheimer join the celebration for a special walk down memory lane with Kosar, Mack, Byner, Langhorne, Brennan, Wright, Golic, Pruitt, Baab and Fike. Now some of the Original Dawgs are gathering for a unique Draft Day experience to promote what The Healing Dawgs have been barking about.
“The Healing Dawgs”, promotes healing of the mind, body and spirit as well as partnerships with the community to advocate for Veterans, children and the homeless. Today, Byner is known for humbly sharing encouragement and hope to help people get through tough times and triumph as winners both on and off the field, by sharing his story “Everybody Fumbles”.
Recently, The Healing Dawgs visited Washington DC VA Medical Center to celebrate with the Veterans and have a “Super Bowl Sundae” Party. Teammate, Ricky Ervins joined Byner to bring a lot of joy to the Veterans, especially those that were in more intensive care. The experience was so humbling to him, that his Healing Dawgs foundation is currently partnering with the VA Medical Center in Cleveland to deal with issues such as suicide, drug use and concussions with a focus on how to increase the awareness of resources available to our Veterans in need. Byner will be hosting a special event with the Veterans on July 30th, the Sunday before the Hall of Fame Game with a special tribute to the Veterans of Cleveland.
Byner is currently developing a structure for kids he calls, “Drills for Life”. He enjoys teaching and encouraging kids to have a winning structure in place and a winning mentality in life. Byner is visiting a Juvenile Assessment Center outside the Cleveland area at the end of April to help these troubled youth receive healing along with love and guidance to love themselves from the inside out. If you would like to donate to the non-profit foundation, “The Healing Dawgs”, click the link below and make your donation today.
