Along with his wife, Karen, He co-founded the Moyer Foundation in 2000 to “…provide comfort and support to children enduring a time of profound physical, emotional or financial distress.” (http://www.moyerfoundation.org/) The Foundation has raised millions of dollars to support hundreds of programs taking care of kids in times of distress and have set up camps designed for children dealing with bereavement and/or addiction in their families.
