Making an Impact
Dick Butkus chiseled an indelible impression on football in America. Now, the game’s most feared defender is going on the offensive to improve health and wellness of Americans of all ages.
These are the charitable endeavors of the Butkus Foundation.
ABOUT DICK BUTKUS
Butkus’ own life was spared by a routine screening in 2001 that identified an immediate need for five-way bypass. The clinic near St. Joseph Hospital credited for identifying and addressing Butkus’ life-threatening condition was renamed the Dick Butkus Center for Cardiac Screening. It has performed thousands of screenings, with about one in five people needing some form of medical attention.
