Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has established the Chattanooga Heroes Fund to support the families of those who lost their lives as well as those who were wounded in the shootings on July 16.
Manning made an initial contribution to the Chattanooga Heroes Fund, according to a news release.
"Our family has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the great city of Chattanooga, and it has a very special place in our hearts," Manning said in the release. "But on July 16th, 2015, this strong, welcoming community was forever changed... The five servicemen who gave their lives, the police officer who risked his life in order to protect others, and the actions of many other first responders were truly heroic."
The fund was created to provide a continuation of financial support to help the families and individuals directly affected by the shooting meet longer-term financial need.
Senator Bob Corker, former mayor of Chattanooga, has also made an initial donation to establish the fund, the release said.
The Fund will be administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, Chattanooga's oldest community-owned foundation.
