We are proud to announce that our Love In The Trenches intern, Kelly Ryan of Towson University, has been chosen as a 2022 Community Quarterback Award recipient. The 2022 Community Quarterback Award is funded by the NFL Foundation, the Ravens Foundation, Inc. and T. Rowe Price, and honors individuals who have exhibited leadership, dedication, and commitment to bettering their local communities.
Kelly was recognized at M&T Bank Stadium at the New Year's game on Sunday, January 1, 2023. Kelly won complimentary tickets to the game and was able to bring a guest, her father, who is a big Ravens fan! Kelly and the other award recipients got a chance to be on the field before the game and were presented on the big screens for all to see!
We are beyond proud of Kelly and all the work she has done for LITT, especially the work she did for our UNDO THE OD campaign to equip all bars and restaurants as well as college campuses with Narcan.
From the Baltimore Ravens Press Release:
In 2019, Love in the Trenches (LITT) was founded to support families of those suffering from substance use disorder and those who have lost a family member to the disease of addiction. The organization provides support groups, education and resources for families, with the intention of changing the perception toward addiction. Ryan joined as an intern / volunteer in January 2022 and immediately became instrumental with the growth of the new campaign Undo the OD. LITT recently launched Undo the OD in hopes of putting a Narcan kit in every bar, restaurant and college campus in the state of Maryland. Through her influence, Towson University has asked LITT to provide Narcan training and kits for Campus Housing, Student Government and Presidents of Greek life.
