After listening to an inspirational Sunday message from a local pastor, Jason Polk (Edward Jones Financial Advisor) felt compelled to respond by doing something special for his community. He called his long-time friend Marcus Preciado (Founder of Cielo Sports) and they both discussed a plan to share some love and joy during the dark and uncertain Coronavirus pandemic.

Jason decided to sponsor a "Help the Heroes" initiative to provide 300 meals to Pomerado Medical Center's COVID-19 Response Team. On a sunny Friday afternoon in Poway CA, Jason and Marcus were joined by Jersey Mikes, 7 Cold Brew Coffee Co., and a group of amazing local San Diego athletes to make sure the medical center's team of first responders felt loved, encouraged and appreciated. Included in the group of athletes serving that day were:

  • Charlie Joiner (NFL HOF WR)

  • Ruppert Jones (MLB All-Star)

  • Heath Bell (MLB All-Star)

  • Roberto Wallace (NFL WR)

  • Rick Takahashi (12 Time National Champion Surfer)
