Former Giants cornerback Perry Williams is behind a movement aimed at inspiring children. Williams has collaborated on a children's book which hopes to remind athletes of their power to help children.

Giants' linebacker and cancer survivor Mark Herzlich held a benefit golf tournament this week to raise money for Uplifting Athletes, a nonprofit organization. Herzlich's outing raised more than $20,000 to benefit Ewing's Sarcoma research.
