NFL Players support Autism Speaks during 'My Cause My Cleats' campaign
This year a number of NFL players have chosen to represent Autism Speaks for the My Cause My Cleats campaign. Players wore cleats inspired by Autism Speaks (pictured below) in games and those cleats will be auctioned off on the NFL auction page. The proceeds from these auctions will help drive our mission to promote solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
THANK YOU to the players supporting the cause this holiday season. The players that chose to support Autism Speaks are as follows:
Duron Harmon, New England Patriots
