Catch for Kids
For every yard Mike gains and every touchdown he scores, he is making an even bigger difference off the field. Our Catch for Kids campaign ties Mike’s on-field production to his mission to help others. At the end of the NFL season, we donate one item for every yard and 13 items for every touchdown he earned to community organizations.

Through the foundation’s annual Catch for Christmas program, they work to create unforgettable holiday experiences for Tampa Bay kids.
