Dec. 17, 2019 – As part of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign, some of the league’s brightest stars raised awareness and funds for their favorite charitable organizations, unveiling custom-made cleats and telling the personal stories behind why they had chosen the cause most important to them.
We are thrilled to share that five amazing athletes selected the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, using this unique opportunity to highlight the importance of saving lives from this growing public health issue:
Alijah Holder — Denver Broncos
Frank Ragnow — Detroit Lions
Chester Rogers — Indianapolis Colts
Solomon Thomas — San Francisco 49ers
Kyle Wilber — Oakland Raiders
We at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention would like to thank these players for showing their support for this important cause, as well as to the NFL for giving them the opportunity to do so.
