Eagles will support charities Sunday with creative cleats


Eagles players will wear custom designed cleats this weekend as part of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign to raise money for charities close to their heart.

Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, Miles Sanders and numerous other Eagles players selected charities meaningful to them to support, many of them either here in Philadelphia or in their hometowns, and worked with artists to design cleats that represent those charities and causes.

Graham’s cleats support the Detroit Police Athletic League, Curry picked Big Brothers / Big Sisters and Sanders the Pittsburgh Boys and Girls Club’ program to end gun violence.

Other examples: Jake Elliott picked Street Tails Animal Rescue, Jalen Reagor Black Men Heal supporting mental health awareness and Jalen Hurts chose Alex’s Lemonade Stand for pediatric cancer awareness. 

Using the hashtag #MyCauseMyCleats, the players will share stories behind their charities and why they’re important to them. Many of the players will then auction off their cleats, with 100 percent the money donated to the charities the players have selected. 

Fans can bid on the cleats at NFLauction.nfl.com.

Eagles coaches and staff will wear their custom cleats supporting the Eagles Autism Foundation a week later when the Eagles face the Saints at the Linc.

Here's a full list of the Eagles' respective charities and causes:
