The 34 Ways Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001 by NFL New Orleans Saints cornerback Mike McKenzie. “Investing in the lives of our youth!” We host annual football camps, sporting events, celebrity fundraisers and spelling bees for elementary and middle school aged children in economically disadvantaged communities. We promote health, physical fitness, community strength and hope for a brighter future. We have maintained a substantial yearly volunteer base. Mike McKenzie has returned to his birthplace and each community in which he has lived to seek out areas of economic underdevelopment and to lend a hand up to more promising futures.
