Northborough – New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski met with fans at Wegmans June 18.

The event, sponsored by Wegmans and BodyArmour SuperDrink, allowed fans to get their photos taken and chat with the man they call “Gronk.” The money raised from the event will go towards the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation.

“It’s a great time because fans get to interact with each other and myself and it all supports the charity. We’re out here talking football and just having a good time,” said Gronkowski.

Coming off of ACL/MCL surgery in the offseason, many fans were curious about the star’s health for the upcoming season.

“I feel great and am ready to go,” said Gronk, relieving fans of any doubts.
