Fifty-one different Thursday's Heroes gathered with their families and the BYU football team on Tuesday night for a reunion on the football practice fields. The approximately 500 people in attendance enjoyed a nice dinner and entertainment while catching up with each other. 

Every week during the football season, an individual or a family with special needs is identified and invited to attend a team practice. At the conclusion of the practice, “Thursday’s Hero” is introduced to Bronco Mendenhall and recognized by the team members in an informal ceremony that is always emotional and fulfilling; indeed Coach Mendenhall and the players are as strengthened and encouraged as the people they honor on a weekly basis. 

Check out below several photos from the reunion.
