Bradley Pinion Nominated for 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award

Friend of Convoy of Hope, Bradley Pinion, has been named the San Francisco 49ers nominee for the 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Along with the award, United Way Worldwide, the National Football League Foundation and Nationwide are donating $50,000 to the charity of choice for each team’s nominee. Pinon has chosen Convoy of Hope as his recipient for the donation.

As part of the award celebration, each nominee is participating in a social media charity challenge. The nominee whose competition hashtag is used the most will receive an extra $25,000 for their charity. To help Pinion raise an extra $25,000 for Convoy of Hope, use the hashtag #WPMOYChallengePinion.

Pinion has been a great supporter of Convoy of Hope this year. He acted as an advocate for our disaster relief work during the especially active 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. He also recently represented Convoy of Hope on his cleats in celebration of the My Cause, My Cleats weekend. We’re also excited to, once again, have Pinon help us serve Bay Area Guests of Honor this week at our Community Event with the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.

49ers Players Partner with Convoy of Hope

Because hope takes teamwork, we are honored to partner with the San Francisco 49ers. Some of the players and their wives recently visited Haiti with Convoy of Hope to serve meals, play with kids and work on betterment projects to assist our work there.

Those players have also generously committed to supporting one of our schools in Haiti, where more than 400 kids are receiving nutritious food, clean water and an education.
