Statement: Suicide Rate Decreases for First Time in 10 Years According to Most Recent CDC Data (Year 2019)

Marking the fifth year of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign, some of the league’s promising stars are raising awareness and funds for their favorite charitable organizations with custom-made cleats and the personal stories behind why they chose the causes closest to them.

We are thrilled to share that again this year five incredible athletes selected the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, using this special opportunity to highlight the importance of saving lives from this crucial public health issue:
