HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson announced the official launch of his foundation dedicated to supporting education, health, housing and other charitable causes for familes and youth in underserved communities. 

The Deshaun Watson Foundation is hosting its first event later this month (Tuesday, Oct. 29) at Pro-Vision Academy in Sunnyside. It will be called The Great Houston Halloween Bash presented by Reliant.

Watson in a statement said he was humbled and honored for the opportunity to make a difference and positively impact children and families in need.

“I would not be where I am today without the help from others," Watson said. "Now it’s my turn to step in and make a difference through the Foundation.”

The school will be transformed into a fall festival where there will be free costumes for the students to participate. Celebrity judges will be onsite to determine the best costume per age group.

“Houston is Reliant’s hometown, which is why we couldn’t be more excited to team up with Deshaun Watson to help make a difference for local communities in need,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president of Reliant. “Deshaun is a power player for our city – on and off the field – and we look forward to supporting his first event, The Great Houston Halloween Bash presented by Reliant.”
