Kicks with a Cause: Raiders lacing up for annual My Cause My Cleats campaign


When the Raiders run out onto the field at Allegiant Stadium next Sunday, many of them won't be sporting their usual cleats.

Instead, players will be wearing cleats with unique designs based on charities and nonprofits important to them.

Derek Carr will again honor youth and health wellness, a cause close to his heart after his son's life was saved through emergency surgery at a children's hospital back in 2013.

Maxx Crosby, a big animal advocate, will feature Stand Up For Pits on his cleats, a nonprofit that is dedication to educating people about pit bulls and ending discrimination against the breed.

Ten Raiders have chosen to raise awareness for cancer charities, including Andre James, whose father passed away from testicular cancer in 2018, and Brandon Bolden, who is a cancer survivor himself.

Started in 2016, My Cause My Cleats is a league-wide initiative that allows players to champion causes important to them with custom designed cleats.

After the game, players have the option to donate their cleats to NFL Auction where fans can bid to win the cleats, with 100% of proceeds from sales go each player's respective cause.

Below is a full list of players and their cause/organization of choice. For more information on each cause, click here.
