Seahawks tight end Jacob and brother, Cody Hollister, are bringing smiles to special needs children across Portland and Central Oregon.
The two brothers have partnered with Specialty Athletic Training, a company that works to provide personal training services for clients with special needs.

Some special needs children might have had a bad experience working out on their own, but Speciality Athletic Training makes sure their clients exercise in a fun and engaging way.
Jacob and Cody Hollister joined this group in order to turn those negative experiences into a positive one.
The Hollister brothers are Oregon natives, as they both were raised in Bend and went to High School at Mountain View.
Jacob touched on the fact that this could make not only make a child’s day but their whole week.
It just puts everything in perspective, where it's easy to get caught up being in this bubble and just being in the NFL and being used to it. You think back to when we were kids and just how excited we were just to be at an NFL game… That just puts it all in perspective… It makes the day, it makes the week.
The Hollister brothers are shining some light in a time where joy is hard to find right now.
