Indianapolis Colts safety David Caldwell and middle linebacker Gary Brackett recently visited Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis to educate students about healthy teen relationships and how to prevent teen relationship violence, as a part of Verizon’s Training Camps for Life initiative.

Caldwell and Brackett spoke about healthy teen relationships and overcoming adversity. Joining them was Stephanie Mathes, director of community relations for the Colts; Willis Whalen, manager of player services of the NFL Players Association; Tony Porter, co-founder of A CALL TO MEN, an organization committed to ending violence against women; and Rose Kirk, president of the Verizon Foundation.

Training Camps for Life is a half-day event addressing topics such as overcoming adversity, decisions and consequences and healthy teen relationships. Caldwell led the 900 students in taking the LIVERESPECT pledge, a commitment to end teen relationship violence and speak out against abuse. Training Camps for Life is a partnership between the National Football League Players Association, A CALL TO MEN and the Verizon Foundation.

Here are some of the pics we captured at the event:
