In light of their selfless efforts, Russell Wilson made several frontline heroes very happy this week when the Seahawks star teamed up with BOSE to give 55 frontline workers the ultimate Super Bowl LV at-home viewing kit.

The kits included a Bose TV Speaker, gift cards to local residents and limited-edition Super Bowl LV merchandise. Upon opening their kits, they were surprised with a live virtual meet and greet from Wilson himself.

Other team BOSE athletes including former Oregon Duck quarterback Justin Herbert also surprised fans and thanked them for their support.  

 

While the Seahawks won’t be playing in this year’s Super Bowl, four Seattle fans will make the trip to Tampa Bay to watch the showdown between Tampa Bay Bucs QB Tom Brady and Kansas City Chiefs defending Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes.

The NFL announced earlier this week that 25,000 fans will be in attendance at Raymond James Stadium, including 7,500 health care workers.
