McKayla Nevers wearing Raheem Brock's Colts Jersey

True Colts Fan

McKayla Nevers, seventh grader at Woodside Middle School has a special pen pal. Raheem Brock #79 from the Indianapolis Colts is very special to McKayla. It all started when her mom came home with a very special Colt's Jersey which was being passed on from a friend at work. At the time McKayla was 8 years old and the Jersey was so big that it looked more like a dress when she wore it. After the Colts won their first super bowl we found the website - www.Raheembrock.com. Raheem Brock had created a foundation to help encourage youth to stay in school. We decided to email the website to see if Raheem would respond. McKayla had questions regarding the jersey and wanted to find out if it were truly his jersey. After writing back and forth, Raheem confirmed that it was really his jersey that he had worn. Since then McKayla and Raheem email back and forth about school, sports and of course the Indianapolis Colts. In 2008 McKayla and Raheem teamed up to raise money for Brock's Kids and for Deer Ridge Elementary by selling t-shirts and raffling off a Colts autographed football.
McKayla dreams of meeting Raheem face to face. Until then she gets excited everytime she opens the mailbox and a new message is waiting. You can find more details on Raheem Brock's website at: http://raheembrock.com/deerridge.html
