Colin Kaepernick is a man of his word.
On Wednesday, the former NFL quarterback announced that he’d fulfilled his pledge of donating $1 million of his salary to communities in need. He began the pledge in September 2016, one month after beginning his on-field protests against structural racismand police brutality.
Kaepernick, who is still a free agent after opting out of his San Francisco 49ers contract in March, confirmed the news to fans on Twitter in a short video Wednesday afternoon.
To wrap up his pledge, the 30-year-old asked a number of high-profile athletes and artists to donate $10,000 to a charity of their choice, which he then matched dollar-for-dollar in what he called the #10for10 challenge.
