ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Adam Wainwright likes to brag about the "giving heart, giving soul" of St. Louis.  

The latest example happened Aug. 30 for the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher's annual Big League Impact Fantasy Football Draft, which has now raised more than $2.5 million for his global initiative fund. 

But it’s not just the St. Louis community pitching in, it’s also some of its biggest stars like Ozzie Smith, Pat Maroon, Kyle McClellan and Waino’s teammates, Michael Wacha and Jack Flaherty. They were there to participate in this year's draft with dozens of others who donated to Waino's cause. 

Although Maroon is on his way to Tampa Bay soon, he made sure to make time for this event before heading to training camp with his new team.
