NFL players show support of Autism Speaks during My Cause My CleatsDecember 15, 2023
Imagine owning a piece of NFL history while supporting a great cause. That's right – you can now bid on the very cleats worn by your favorite NFL players and coaches, custom designed to support Autism Speaks.
As part of the league-wide My Cause My Cleats initiative, which began in 2016, players across the league are wearing customized cleats to champion causes and raise money for organizations near to their hearts.
This year, several players and coaches chose to show their support of Autism Speaks and the autistic community by rocking custom footwear in NFL stadiums across the country, including D’Onta Foreman and Greg Stroman Jr. (Chicago Bears), Duron Harmon (Cleveland Browns), Lloyd Cushenberry III (Denver Broncos) and Desmond King (Tennessee Titans). Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator, Luke Getsy, also got in on the action by reppin’ custom Autism Speaks sneakers in honor of his daughter, Nora.
Other players to show their support for Autism Speaks included Trystan Colon (Arizona Cardinals), Frank Darby and Xavier “Zay” Malone (Atlanta Falcons), Darrell Baker Jr. and Cameron McGrone (Indianapolis Colts), Cor’Dale Flott (New York Giants), Daniel Thomas (Jacksonville Jaguars), Sam Cosmi (Washington Commanders) and Spencer Anderson (Pittsburgh Steelers).
After proudly wearing them on game day, players and coaches can let their custom shoes shine off the field by donating them to NFL Auction where fans can bid on their favorite pair. 100% of My Cause My Cleats sales from NFL Auction go to the NFL Foundation and are then allocated to players’ designated charities.
