‘My Cause My Cleats’: Steelers will wear cleats Sunday that showcase charitable causes

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers will be wearing special cleats during this Sunday’s game at Acrisure Stadium against the Arizona Cardinals.

For the eighth straight year, the NFL is allowing players to represent a charity that means a lot to them.

The initiative is called “My Cause My Cleats.” It was created for players to showcase a charitable cause and bring attention to it.

After wearing the cleats, the players have the option to auction them off to raise money for their cause, with 100% of the funds raised given to the charity.

Here are the special causes Steelers players are representing this year:
