Team Gleason was the beneficiary of an event held in advance of the Feb. 20 Monster Jam in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Team Gleason, founded by football hero Steve Gleason, empowers people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis through technological innovation and public awareness.

The event in the West Bunker Club Lounge at the Superdome featured a meet and greet with Monster Jam drivers and Chick-Fil-A cows, giveaways and refreshments. Then, there was a practice round for the larger-than-life trucks of the Monster Jam, produced by Feld Motor Sports.
