The National Football League's My Cause My Cleats campaign, now in its seventh season, is an annual initiative that empowers players to showcase their commitment to the causes they support through creative artwork and custom designs on their game cleats. To recognize and celebrate the positive impact players are having across the country, the Philadelphia Eagles will join the NFL community by lacing up their custom cleats on Sunday, December 4, for a 1:00 PM ET home matchup versus Tennessee.
"The platform we have as players in the National Football League allows us to reach an entire generation of people in their homes, their communities, in schools, and on the football field," said Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham. "I am proud to join my teammates and brothers across the league as we shine a light on these important causes. We are grateful for this opportunity provided by the NFL and hope that our presence on the field this weekend inspires the global football community to give back and support our efforts."
This year, Eagles players will raise awareness for several important causes such as gun violence prevention, autism, youth development, and literacy, among others.
Eagles staff members will also be supporting the My Cause My Cleats campaign by wearing Eagles Autism Foundation-inspired sneakers on Sunday. For the sixth consecutive year, the team's signature charitable initiative, which has raised more than $16 million for cutting-edge autism research and care programs, will be displayed on Nike sneakers with a customized Eagles Autism Foundation color scheme and proudly worn by coaches, players, trainers, ownership, and staff.
Eagles players had the opportunity to spotlight their passions beyond the game through their cleats for the Week 13 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Check out the impressive artwork that expresses the causes that mean the most to the team!
Images of the cleats and the inspirational stories behind them will be shared on social media using the hashtag #MyCauseMyCleats. Players can choose to raise funds for their causes by auctioning their cleats off at NFL Auction, where 100% of the proceeds raised will be donated to charities selected by the players.
