Some uplifting news on this Friday afternoon.  The First Coast News out of Jacksonville reported on Friday that Patriots runningback Fred Taylor has announced the creation of the "Fred Taylor Foundation for disabled children" in Jacksonville and Miami.

Taylor, who spent most of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, is in Florida with his wife Andrea and presented a $25,000 check to Wolfson Children's Hospital this morning.

The story includes a great video and photos from the visit, and you can see that he's a big part of the community down in Jacksonville.

The former Jaguars runningback signed a two year contract with New England on February 27, 2009 and appeared in six games for the Patriots last season, rushing for 269 yards and four touchdowns.
