Henderson along with Clinch Gear have teamed up to help provide Thanksgiving dinner to families at both the Denver Rescue Mission and the San Diego Rescue Mission.
Clinch Gear is currently selling a limited edition Dan Henderson walkout shirt, and for each shirt sold the company will subsidize the cost of providing a Thanksgiving meal for a family of four.
“With the Thanksgiving holiday just days after my fight, we want to remind fans that there are a lot of people out there fighting for more important things than a UFC title,” said Henderson. “There are so many American families are struggling to pay for basic necessities, such as food, clothing and shelter, and this is an opportunity for Clinch Gear and the MMA community to make a difference this Thanksgiving.”
Henderson returns to the UFC for the first time after a stint in Strikeforce where he won the light heavyweight title. Now as he gears up for his first fight back in the UFC, he’s hoping to support families in need this holiday season.
“Giving back is a big part of our company culture,” said Clinch Gear CEO Bruce Pettet. “With the help of the MMA community, our donations will give needy families a hearty Thanksgiving meal and a little less to worry about this holiday season.”
The walkout tees for Henderson along with cornerman tee’s are available for purchase on the Clinch Gear website.
