GMC presented a brand new 2014 GMC Acadia to the mother of 13-year-old Tyson Wheelock last week, as part of its partnership with USA Network’s Characters Unite public service campaign.
The donation was made live on the Today Show and also served as a prelude to a documentary about Tyson that premiered last Friday. His story is about facing bullies who pressure him in and out of school to fight with other kids.
With the mentorship of Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb, Tyson led a team of volunteers during a local Habitat for Humanity build, boosting his self-esteem and teaching him the courage and leadership he needs to make the right choices.
This was all made possible by NFL Characters Unite, presented by GMC, which profiles NFL stars as they share their personal stories of overcoming prejudice, bullying, and discrimination with the goal of helping kids facing the same kinds of challenges.
