Achievements and awards...
Glenn and his wife Jen founded The Glenn Foley WINGS Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works pro-actively to heighten awareness and education of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and organ donation. Glenns mother Sue has been battling PKD since 1971. PKD causes cysts to develop on the kidneys, causing them to enlarge, thereby hindering the kidneys filtering ability. In 1998, Sue received a kidney transplant from her husband Ed.
Glenn Foley WINGS Foundation is working to build a partnership of leaders, joined
by a committed group of volunteers, to provide financial support for education
and research aimed at finding a cure for PKD. For more information regarding WINGS

We salute Glenn for his continued involvement both on and off the field and are proud to have him as the Mt. Holly Pro Day Honoree for 2006.
