NFL’s Good Morning Football: Aya traveler surprised by NFL with Super Bowl LV tickets
RJ Gardner is a former military vet, served in the U.S. Coast Guard and was part of the search and rescue team during Hurricane Katrina. Following his service, he wanted to continue with a career in helping others — so he became a nurse. At the height of the pandemic, RJ took a COVID assignment in New Jersey, one of the epicenters of the virus.
Today, RJ shared his story on NFL’s Good Morning Football, where they surprised him with a pair of tickets to Super Bowl LV on February 7! The NFL is giving tickets to 7,500 healthcare workers who have been vaccinated for coronavirus. While most of these healthcare workers are from Florida, 32 NFL teams were able to choose workers from their cities to attend the game.
We’re thrilled an Aya travel nurse was honored by the NFL for his dedication to helping treat and stop the spread of COVID-19 and so proud of RJ’s past, present and future service.
