Bears equipment director Tony Medlin honoured.

Bears equipment director : Longtime Bears equipment director Tony Medlin received the Callahan Foundation’s prestigious “Give a Hand Out to Give a Hand Up” sports award last Saturday night.
Madeline was one of three people honoured at the organization’s 15th annual scholarship benefit gala at Tinley Park. The others were U.S. Representative Robin Kelly and Pastor Reginald W. Sharp Jr.
“I’m honoured,” Madeline said. There are a lot of people involved that make these moments possible. I’m grateful to the McCaskey family and the Chicago Bears for allowing me to do the work that I do. It’s very gratifying. It just reminds me of .” “How much people appreciate what we do.”
Bears President George H. McCaskey went to the occasion to help Medlin.

The Callahan Foundation was founded in 2009.

The Callahan Foundation was founded in 2009 with the mission to help through scholarships, college tuition and community outreach. Madeline and the other two award winners were recognized because they epitomize the Foundation’s mission.
Medlin joined the Bears in 1987 and has led the equipment department since 1997. He is responsible for coordinating all equipment operations for the team, including logistics, purchasing and inventory for all players, coaches and staff.
Madeline also leads the Bears’ annual coat drive. Coat Drive was started in 1989 by Medlin’s predecessor, Gary Hager, and the equipment department. After replacing Hager in 1997, Madeline was determined to continue the initiative. Each year, thousands of new and gently used coats are donated and then distributed to people in need throughout the Chicago area.

This prestigious honour is presented to the Bears employee who has demonstrated Ms. McCaskey’s characteristics and values: grace, humility, loyalty and dedication. A winner is a person who not only exceeds the highest standards of achievement but whose work sets him apart from his peers.
