Montgomery Holds Camp for a Cure

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Former Hawks came out in force to help one of their own on Saturday. The goal, raise money to help find a cure for Sanfilippo Syndrome, and have fun doing it.

Former Hawkeye Lew Montgomery, whose 17 year old son Lucas, suffers from the genetic disorder, organized the Gridiron Greats of Iowa camp to raise money for research. Funds would also be donated to help special needs patients at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Several Hawkeyes, including Heisman trophy runner-up Brad Banks, Tim Dwight, Mitch King, and Marvin Lampkin took time to work with campers from 1st to 12th grade. Montgomery says it's great to see the support he's gotten from the group, and hopes to expand it in future years.

"Having guys like Brad Banks come in, and Marvin Lampkin, and some of the others come out, it means a lot to me," said Montgomery, "We have a really strong Hawkeye network. We're really trying to get more guys from Iowa State and UNI join us in future years, and really make this a Gridiron Greats of Iowa camp."
