Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce is the 2020 Chiefs nominee for the coveted Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award which recognizes an NFL player for excellence on and off the field.
Each NFL team nominates one player who has had a significant positive impact on his community for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. This award is one of the highest honors awarded by the NFL – and Minsky’s is proud to have had a part in helping Travis help the community through his charitable efforts!
The winner of the Walter Payton award will receive $250,000 to be donated to the winner’s charity of choice. This year’s winner will be announced during the NFL’s annual Awards Show scheduled for Saturday, February 6th, the night before Super Bowl LV on Sunday, February 7th.
Thanks in a large part to the great Chiefs fans in Kansas City, Travis received the most votes in the NFL’s initial Charity Challenge, a social media hashtag campaign across the entire NFL, designed to support and promote team nominees for WPMOTY. By winning first place in the Charity Challenge, Travis netted $25,000 for Eighty-Seven & Running.
Minsky’s Pizza first teamed up with Travis during the 2019-20 season to create the “The Kelceroni” – Travis’s gourmet pizza creation that is as tasty as it is charitable! For each Kelceroni purchased, a donation was made to Kelce’s 87 & Running Foundation benefiting Operation Breakthrough. Last season, Minsky’s Pizza – with the help of our amazing customers – was able to contribute more than $55,000 to the cause – which was used to help launch Kelce’s new “Ignition Lab” at Operation Breakthrough.
This year, in spite of the global pandemic, Minsky’s Pizza hopes to raise a similar amount to further assist in brining the Ignition Lab to life at Operation Breakthrough.

• Medium Kelceroni = $1.00 Donation
• Small Kelceroni = .75 Donation
Minsky’s Pizza is extremely proud to work with Travis Kelce as he continues his journey not only to make NFL history, but also to impact the future of our hometown, Kansas City, through his Eighty-Seven & Running foundation. Lend a hand – order your Kelceroni and make a difference!
