Colin Kaepernick is headed deep into Buffalo Bills country today.
The 49ers quarterback is the featured guest and will give the keynote address at the 64th annual Rochester Press-Radio Club Day of Champions Children's Charities Dinner this evening. Kaepernick, 25, also will be honored as the Sports Personality of the Year.
The 49ers quarterback has been in great demand since he took over the 49ers offense in November and led them to within five yards of a Super Bowl victory. He's met Michelle Obama, been a pitch man for Jaguar - and got a sports car out of the deal - and attended the Country Music Awards.
Today's speech and appearance will benefit children. Since the Rochester Press-Radio Club's inception in 1949, it has donated more than $1.5 million to local charities. Tickets to the event begin at $130. Green Bay's Clay Matthew's was the featured guest at the event two years ago while the Giants Eli Manning was the guest of honor last year.
Meanwhile, Jim Harbaugh is on his own charity mission - to Piura, Peru, where he goes with a group of friends and church members each summer. Here's what I wrote a year ago.
