Peyton Manning was honored at the March of Dimes Greater New York Market at its 33rd annual Sports Luncheon on Wednesday.
“It’s a tremendous honor, any time you honor people in all sports, and they’ve honored some of my favorite players at this event in years past,” Manning said. “At the same time raising money for a tremendous cause, it’s a win-win, I think. And I think it’s really neat that the event this year is run by all the heads of the major networks that are probably as competitive as the Giants trying to beat the Jets.
“It’s competitive in that field as well, and yet they all come together to raise money for a great cause, and this is a special cause. Eli for the past 10 years has been the celebrity chair of the Greater New York March for Babies, so I know how important this cause is to him and so I’m really honored to be a part of it.”
