Many New York Jets players are set to participate in the NFL’s ‘My Cause, My Cleats’ campaign in Week 13.
In Week 13, players and coaches around the NFL will be rocking custom cleats in order to raise awareness for specific causes and organizations.
Going into the sixth year of the campaign’s existence, “My Cause, My Cleats” seeks to raise money and aid these causes in reaching their ultimate goal.
On Sunday vs. the Eagles, over 20 New York Jets players will take part in the movement, per the New York Post’s Brian Costello.

The most popular causes among Jets players revolve around children and cancer awareness.
Sporting cleats in support of youth health/wellness or education are kicker Matt Ammendola, wide receiver Keelan Cole, quarterback Josh Johnson, punter Braden Mann, center Connor McGovern, and safety Sharrod Neasman.
Among those raising awareness for cancer is quarterback Zach Wilson, defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, defensive end John Franklin-Myers, as well as linebackers Quincy Williams, C.J. Mosley, and Blake Cashman.
Other causes being highlighted include autism, mental health, ALS, hunger relief, special needs, disease awareness/prevention, childhood sexual abuse, and homelessness.
After this week’s games, players and coaches have the chance to auction off their cleats. All proceeds go directly to the participant’s cause of choice.

On the league’s official website, the campaign is described as:
“NFL players reveal their passions beyond the game and wear their hearts on their feet through My Cause My Cleats. Players have the opportunity to pick a cause that is important to them and represent their chosen organization on custom-designed cleats.”
Along with his players, head coach Robert Saleh will also be taking part in the initiative. The non-profit Saleh will support on Sunday is Sanaa’s Stars, a foundation built on love and hope for children that were sexually abused.
