With Super Bowl LV around the corner, there’s a special team spirit in the air. Convoy of Hope is especially excited for some of our friends in the NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ punter Bradley Pinion, Kansas City Chiefs’ mascot Dan Meers, and Vance McDonald as the Steelers’ nomination for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.
Congratulations to Bradley as he plays in his first Super Bowl game! He has been an incredible supporter of Convoy of Hope by delivering hope through Pro-Series Community Events, promoting us on his cleats for “My Cause, My Cleats,” and bringing awareness to our mission.
We are also looking forward to seeing our friend Dan Meers on the field as KC Wolf, the beloved Kansas City Chiefs mascot! Just as he does on the football field, Dan has brought joy to so many alongside Convoy of Hope. Traveling with us to Tanzania in 2019, he served communities and shared team spirit with the kids in our Children’s Feeding program.
When Vance McDonald was named the Steelers’ nominee for the 2020 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award, we were proud to know him as our friend. This award recognizes outstanding players for “excellence on and off the field.” McDonald has been a great supporter of Convoy of Hope and has helped us spread light to the world. The winner of the award will be announced during NFL Honors on February 6 at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
