WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 4: The night we brought Harbaugh, Tomlin and Billick together to share Super Bowl glory stories

In the aftermath of Jennifer Aparicio’s miraculous survival following a second bone marrow transplant, we were inspired to do a second “Night of Heroes” after leukemia survivor Chuck Pagano came back to Baltimore in 2015 to raise money and awareness for There Goes My Hero and the power of swabbing to save lives. If you missed one of the great nights in Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh sports partnerships in May 2016, you can relive it by watching three Super Bowl winning head coaches on one stage for a great cause. This was also the last public appearance of former Ravens president David Modell, who had some very important words, as did Super Bowl XXXV champion James Trapp, who also survived leukemia. A powerful evening.
