Video Clip from the Movie “Reggie’s Prayer”

In 1996 Jefferson High School and Portland Oregon was blessed to play host to the filming of the movie Reggie’s Prayer.  Although it never made it to the big screen those of us involved in the film took away many valuable lessons from Reggie White who lived as a devout man of god.

In this particular scene Reggie White is seeing his new school for the first time.  He retired from the NFL in order to teach and coach football at an inner city school that had been plagued with gangs, drugs etc.

Big thanks to the casting director Ms. LeVerne Green for giving us kids an opportunity to be involved with this project.

Rest In Peace to a great man. Reggie White (December 19, 1961 – December 26, 2004).

#DaddyActive is 503tv’s new campaign promoting and celebrating active fatherhood in our children’s lives. We encourage everyone to use the hashtag #DaddyActive on social networks to acknowledge positive fatherly activity. We realize that there are absentee fathers in our communities however we’d like to see just as much recognition given to the fathers that are taking care of their responsibilities as the condemnation given to those that don’t.

On Friday July 1st Jessie Sponberg aka Ozone held the 4th Annual Food Wars can food drive at the Bossanova Ball Room. This was the first time 503tv had the honor of being in attendance and we were floored by the response from local hip hop artist and their fans.  All food collected went to feed local families in need via Impact Northwest.  We salute Ozone for using his influence to organize and help the less fortunate.
