When the San Francisco 49ers suit up in New Orleans tomorrow, they will do so with cleats that promote charitable organizations that are close to their hearts. It’s one of the NFL’s best weekends of the year when players across the league do so as part of My Cause My Cleats.
This past Tuesday, Dec. 3, players unboxed their cleats as part of Giving Tuesday. See below for some highlights of causes your favorite 49ers’ players will be representing.
Kendrick Bourne’s cleats represent Autism Speaks.
DeForest Buckner’s cleats represent Beyond Differences: Inspiring Youth to End Social Isolation.
Dee Ford’s cleats represent the Boys & Girls Club of Oakland.
Richie James’ cleats represent Special Olympics Northern California.
George Kittle’s cleats represent TAPS for Military & Military Family Appreciation.
Mike McGlinchey’s cleats also represent Autism Speaks, specifically in support of his brother Jimmy. Make sure to check out CB South Brew Crew, which is a coffee shop McGlinchey’s brother, along with others with special needs, runs.
Solomon Thomas’s cleats represent the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. He said, “I play for my sister, Ella, and to destigmatize depression.”
