Juan Thornhill raffling off cleats paying tribute to slain Virginia players

Kansas City Chiefs DB Juan Thornhill is turning a wonderful gesture into a better one.

Thornhill will wear cleats Sunday when the Chiefs play the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi that honor the memory of the 3 Virginia football players who were killed a week ago Sunday.

And, Thornhill is offering a chance to win the cleats through a raffle. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the victims of the senseless shootings.

Here are the details if you want to get involved in this wonderful event:

On Sunday, November 13th, 2022, tragedy struck the Charlottesville community when three young, outstanding men lost their lives.Three UVA football players, Larnel Davis Jr. (True Junior), D’Sean Perry (Redshirt Junior) & Devin Chandler (True Junior), tragically lost their lives. Two others were seriously injured in the incident.

I have started this giveaway to raise money for the victims’ families to help cover the cost of each of their funerals and alleviate other expenses the families are enduring.

As a UVA football alumnus and friend of the victims, this touches home for me as it does for so many across the nation. All donations from this campaign will go directly to each of the victim’s families to help alleviate any expenses due to the tragedy.

As a thank you for the donations, I would like to enter every donor into a giveaway for the following:

1) Game-worn tribute cleats, as pictured above

2) Signed Juan Thornhill game-worn jersey

3) Two (2) tickets to a Chiefs playoff game this postseason

Every $20 donated to this cause will give the donor one (1) ticket for the drawing. For instance, a $100 donation will equate to 5 raffle tickets.

The giveaway drawing will happen on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022, and the winner will be chosen randomly.

Thank everyone for contributing to this cause that will fully support families in a time of need & grieving.
