A Brief Overview and History of the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation

Dedicated to serve the Chicago community in as many ways as possible, Aurora’s ABC Distributing has long been a sponsor of the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation, which provides support to underserved children and families throughout the region. Founded in 1998 by now-deceased NFL great Walter “Sweetness” Payton and his wife, Connie, the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation was formed to aggregate the Payton family’s many charitable activities in and around Chicago Since then, the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation has gone on to donate a wide range of material support and social services to underprivileged children, directly through the foundation and via such events as the Chicago Marathon.

 

Among its annual programs, the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation host a Back-to-School Supply Drive, a Holiday Giving Program, and the Kendall County “Sweetness” 5K & 8K Run/Walk, now in its seventh year. ABC Distributing has been proud to take part in these and other events.
