In 1993, Esi­a­son launched the Boomer Esi­a­son Foun­da­tion. Know­ing he was in for a bat­tle, Boomer re­al­ized he couldn’t fight this one alone. He needed to “pick a team” and he needed each mem­ber to be as pas­sion­ate and ded­i­cated to the cause as a man with a son fight­ing to breathe an­other day. His “first round” pick was his for­mer cen­ter with the Ben­gals, Dave Rim­ing­ton, who was work­ing for an im­port-ex­port busi­ness in Hong Kong. Esi­a­son sim­ply told Rim­ing­ton, "I could use a hand, buddy." Rim­ing­ton re­turned to the states and helped launch the foun­da­tion. Football had now taken a back seat to Esi­a­son’s new goal: be­ing out­lived by his son.
