February 16, 2013. Houston, TX. 2012 NFL MVP Adrian Peterson invited Chris to meet him and his world champion AD Elite girls basketball team at his All Day on the Runway Celebrity Fashion Show during NBA All Star Weekend. Other stars of the NBA and NFL including JJ Watt, Matt Schaub, Terrell Owens, Blake Griffin, Tramon Williams, Keyon Dooling and Robert Griffith walked the runway to benefit Peterson’s All Day Foundation.
Chris and Adrian both support domestic violence prevention programs through their foundations. Chris has been involved with Jenesse Center in Los Angeles quietly for the past four years, and Adrian supports Cornerstone in Minneapolis and Texas Council on Family Violence in Houston.
The big surprise of the night was when Chris appeared from backstage to join the audience.
“This is a cause that is close to my heart, and I appreciate that Adrian invited me to be here,” said Chris. “He’s a role model for any athlete or person. As far as his faith and determination are concerned, he is legendary.”
“I’m impressed by the amount Chris gives back through his charity work and how he’s constantly striving to become a better man,” said Adrian about Brown. “God can forgive, so can we.”
The event raised over $50,000 for the charities. To get involved, check out:
