Helping Adolescence Achieve Their Dreams
NFL Pro Bowl running back, Derrick Henry, founded the Two All Foundation to level the playing field for today’s youth so that their future success is not limited by the circumstances of their upbringing, background, disability, or influence.
Henry created the Two All Foundation to honor the legacy and life of his grandmother, Gladys Henry, who played an integral role in his upbringing. Two All maintains the values she embodied as a devoted grandmother, mother, provider, friend and mentor. I Did It, Grandma

Holiday Giveaways, Backpack & Bikes Drive, and Back to School Shopping Sprees
For years, Derrick Henry has continued to host two annual events where he’s given away thousands of toys, bikes, and backpacks to children in Yulee, FL, his beloved hometown. He kicks off each school year hosting his Backpack and Bikes Drive where he gifts these items to the first 200 kids that arrive. Every December, Two All Foundation volunteers and Henry’s family distribute toys to the first 500 kids to arrive at the Walmart on State Road 200 during his annual holiday giveaway. A Nassau County native, Henry recognizes the importance of consistently showing up for the community that helped shape him into the man he is today.
In addition to these Florida events, Henry consistently supports Nashville youth by organizing back to school shopping sprees and holiday giveaways. Derrick loves spending time with local kids and teachers by taking them back to school shopping or taking the time to mentor a whole classroom by taking the time to encourage them about their schoolwork and surprising them with new shoes for the year. Around the holidays, he’s busy shopping for holiday wish list items on behalf of foster families who can’t afford holiday gifts for the kids or he’s surprising locals by paying off their layaway balances right before Christmas.
Appreciation for Special Olympians
Derrick Henry has a heart for another type of athlete – those in the Special Olympics. The Titans sponsored a “My Cause My Cleats” campaign whereby Special Olympians designed cleats to be worn by Titans players.
The cleats was auctioned off after the game, with the proceeds going to the Special Olympics. Derrick also treated five Special Olympics athletes to pizza and joined them as they designed the colorful cleats he would wear.
He treasures the cleats because he set a franchise record in them. But more importantly, he treasures the cleats because of his connection with the kids.
