MY CAUSE MY CLEATS
More than 50 Jaguars players and coaches will participate in the NFL's fifth annual My Cause My Cleats campaign during Sunday's game. Working with local and national artists, coaches and players have customized their cleats and game day shoes to represent an issue or organization that is of special significance to them. Each pair of shoes tells a personal story, and many will be donated to raise funds for their chosen organization. Participants are raising awareness for a variety of causes, from the environment to healthcare to social justice. In celebration of their good work, the Jaguars Foundation has provided more than 300 free tickets to local organizations connected to player and coach causes. For a complete list of participants and a look at their shoe designs and causes, fans can visit https://www.jaguars.com/mycausemycleats20. Media wishing to access high resolution imagery of many of the shoe designs can click here.
