Before Arian was an All-Pro and Pro Bowl star running back for the Houston Texans, he was just another kid in an underserved part of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Arian dreamed of one day leaving the world a much better place than the one he inherited. Growing up in a single parent household, with barely enough to get by, he was inspired to change that course, not only for his family, but for the next generation as well. Arian believes that, “Having access to financial education, more nutritious food choices and opportunities for personal development should not be a luxury or a privilege. Rather, it should be every child’s right!”
Arian believes that together we can level the playing field, so that every family and their children can have access to healthy, nutritious food, financial education and opportunities to grow and build brighter futures. By providing access to these resources in underserved communities, we can foster the “next us” to become all that they dream.
As a professional athlete, Arian understands the platform he has been afforded to help fight these key issues and strives to make a huge impact. In 2015, Arian founded the Arian Foster Family Foundation to make sure of it.
