Ovie Mughelli: Empowering the next generation through green superheroes

Former All-Pro NFL fullback Ovie Mughelli's entrance into environmental advocacy came after the realization that the environment is about people, and environmental and human health are inextricably linked. Since then, the Ovie Mughelli Foundation has made it its mission to educate youth on environmental stewardship, fusing his passion and career to use sports as a catalyst to excite young people about the environment. In addition to building enthusiasm and awareness, Mughelli's foundation is also focused on educating youth about the career opportunities available in fields where they can have a positive impact on the environment.
