About Kurt Warner

While the football narrative of NFL quarterback Kurt Warner reads like a rags-to-riches Hollywood script, it is the story of a man filled with dignity, class, and undeniable faith that captured the imagination of the sports world and beyond. In 1999, Warner defied logic by emerging from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. In that same year, he was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. He led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances – including another Super Bowl - and received Pro Bowl honors for three consecutive years (1999-2001). He also was one of a few NFL players to be recognized with two NFL MVP awards, receiving his second after the 2001 season. In 2008, he led the Cardinals to their first-ever Super Bowl berth, was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl, and surpassed several Cardinals’ franchise records including touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage, and passer rating.

After a record-laden 12-year career, Warner retired from the NFL following the 2009 season. Warner reached the pinnacle of success on the field but, his gridiron accomplishments pale in comparison to the dedication he devotes to the community. In 2001, Kurt and his wife Brenda established the First Things First Foundation, a non-profit public charity dedicated to impacting lives in a lasting way by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put first things first. First Things First’s outreach includes hosting annual weeklong trips to Disney World for children in medical crisis and their families; rewarding hard-working single mothers who achieve the dream of homeownership; and raising over $875,000 for rebuilding efforts after the 2008 Midwest floods.

In 2012, Kurt and Brenda founded Treasure House, a Christian-based supported living community for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Treasure House offers an affordable residential opportunity to cultivate independence with the appropriate resources. Warner’s off-the-field accolades include the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, The Good Guy Award from the Pro Football Writers Association, USA WEEKEND’s Most Caring Athlete, and Sports Illustrated-Best Role Model. In 2017 Warner was given the ultimate praise in professional football when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. To encapsulate all of this, Warner inked a deal with Lionsgate Films to bring his life story to the big screen with producers Kingdom Studios at the helm. The movie titled American Underdog, was released in theatres December 2021

All proceeds from Civic benefit more than 50 programs to help those in need without discrimination across Chicagoland.
