Chris Harris named Broncos’ 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year – The Denver Post

The day after the Broncos returned from Buffalo, where they took their first loss of the season, cornerback Chris Harris hosted a coat drive at a local steakhouse to benefit Denver Children’s Home, an organization that helps kids who have survived trauma and abuse confront mental health challenges. Joined by some of his teammates, Harris raised nearly $6,000 that September evening and watched as nearly 350 winter coats and multiple pairs of boots were stacked high for those in need.

“They never have winter clothes so I just thought this would be a great opportunity to have something for them, to be able to provide them, mostly the homeless, warm clothes by the time winter comes,” Harris said at the time. “It’s something that is very needed, so I’ll definitely try to do it every year.”

The day after the Broncos returned from Miami, where they took their ninth and arguably worst loss of the season this past weekend, Harris joined nearly 100 families at Denver Rescue Mission for their annual holiday party. The initiative was once led by former Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey. Harris has carried the torch.
