Hyde, Bill commit to helping victims of Buffalo shooting

Buffalo, NY ( Associated Press) — Micah Hyde considered canceling her charity softball game after hearing about the shooting at a Buffalo supermarket on Saturday.

Bills Safety knew he and his partners could try to help the victims’ families and the stricken community.

A white, 18-year-old gunman in military gear and livestreaming with a helmet camera opened fire at Topps Friendly Market on Saturday afternoon, killing 10 people and injuring three others. Most of the victims were black.

“I still can’t believe it,” Hyde said ahead of his softball event Sunday at Sahlen Field in downtown Buffalo. “But when there’s hate in the world, you wipe it out with love, and get out here today to show the youth and love of the community, love to the community, love to the foundation. I think that’s the way to combat it.” way.”

Hyde, whose Imagine for Youth Foundation received $200,000 from the event’s sponsors, is committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from the games to the families of victims. Money from a silent auction in the game will also go to the families of the victims.

“If we stopped and canceled everything because of hatred,” Hyde said, “we wouldn’t move forward.”

A few dozen of Hyde’s Bills teammates were also involved in the softball game, including quarterback Josh Allen and cornerback Tre’Davius ​​White. Allen said this week the Voluntary Organized Team Activities Bills will meet on Monday to determine how they can help the families of victims.

“I was sick to my stomach all day yesterday,” Allen said in a video posted by the Bills. “I was flying back from my sister’s graduation, and it was just, This is so bad. It really is. … We’d talk as a team and figure out what we wanted to do But there is no doubt that we are going to do something.”
