Tampa Bay wide receiver Michael Clayton is usually focused on beating opposing cornerbacks for the ball on Sundays.
But now Clayton is focused on beating something else – pediatric cancer.
The second-year receiver has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz and its local dealers to launch “Catch for the Cure,” a program that will aid the Pediatric Cancer Foundation (PCF).
For every catch Clayton makes during the 2005 season, several Mercedes-Benz dealerships, including Crown Eurocars, Lokey Motor Company, Central Florida Eurocars, Mercedes-Benz of Tampa and Mercedes-Benz of Sarasota, will make a donation to the PCF to help fund research and hope for children with cancer.
Clayton has already hauled in a team-leading 10 passes for 141 yards through two games this season.
“The Foundation is excited to join forces with Mercedes-Benz and Michael Clayton in finding a cure for childhood cancer,” said Barbara Rebold, executive director for PCF. “Over the past several years, Mercedes-Benz has made a tremendous impact on the research we fund through this fun player program.”
