Second Mile Takes Down Page On Website Listing Honorary Board Members

Tuesday November 15th, 2011

The embattled Second Mile charity has deleted a section of its website that displayed its honorary board members, according to Darren Rovell of CNBC.

Cal Ripken Jr., Lou Holtz, and Andy Reid were among other celebrities listed on the now deleted page, according to Rovell. A screen shot of the deleted page, which shows the names of other honorary board members, can be seen here.

The Second Mile has come under scrutiny in recent weeks after the emerging accusations of sexual abuse charges against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. The charity, designed to help young children with a troubled past, was believed to be used by Sandusky as a source to find his victims.
