Outside of working on his game this offseason, Justin Fields is working to help the community, too. 

He recently donated $10,000 of his money to Special Olympics through his foundation, "The Justin Fields Foundation." It marked the first donation he made through his foundation. 

His foundation aims to help young people in the Chicago community. Fields Dunkin's 20th Annual Cop on a Rooftop fundraiser with his mother, Gina, and father, Pablo, a retired Atlanta police sergeant.

"The foundation really came from just trying to help the community, trying to strengthen the community in all areas," Fields told Fox32 Chicago. "I really just wanted to do that through grants in areas of youth empowerment, leadership development, scholastic achievement and health and wellness. [This is] the first opportunity we got and we're definitely excited for it, so it's an awesome opportunity for sure."

Fields is truly a leader on and off the field.  ​
