Tebow cleats score $2,025 for cancer research

By Staff

A day after Tim Tebow orchestrated a dramatic comeback to lead the Denver Broncos to a win over the Miami Dolphins, a pair of his signed, pink cleats were auctioned off to help produce a victory over breast cancer through research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

The eBay auction ended Monday morning, Oct. 24, with a closing bid of $2,025. The Tim Tebow Foundation, in partnership with XV Enterprises, sold the cleats worn by Tebow during the Oct. 3 Broncos-Tennessee Titans game. The winner also will receive an autographed photo of Tebow wearing the cleats.

The CU Cancer Center has the largest breast cancer research program in the Rocky Mountain region. The center is known for research that includes how hormones drive breast cancer, identifying genes that cause breast cancer to invade and spread, and the association of breast cancer and pregnancy. The center’s women’s cancers group holds $7.2 million in research funding today.
