Malden native and NFL Super Bowl Champion Breno Giacomini will return to his hometown on Saturday, May 11th for his annual American Football Without Barriers Camp (AFWB). He will be joined by former NFL Cleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnidge at Macdonald Stadium on Pearl Street. The free camp is open to residents in neighboring communities and will hold sessions for youth grades K-6 from 5-6:30 PM and grades 7-12 from 7-9 PM.
Breno and his good friend Gary Barnidge founded AFWB, a football-related charity foundation in 2011. The foundation’s goal is to spread the game of football to underprivileged areas around the world by hosting yearly camps that support football clubs in other countries, as well as spending time to help out American local charities. Breno’s strong connection to his hometown along with his passion to give back to his community led him to offering the program to Malden officials several years ago. Campers will be put through a variety of drills in an effort to improve their skills. Registration will be on May 11th at 4 PM at Macdonald Stadium. Participants may also register on line at www.afwbcamp.com.
