Broncos players & personnel to participate in 2021 My Cause My Cleats initiative to raise awareness for causes and nonprofit organizations


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Nearly 65 Denver Broncos players will participate in this year's My Cause My Cleats initiative to raise awareness for various causes and nonprofit organizations.

In addition, Broncos executives and coaches will take part in the league-wide campaign for the first time since its inception. President & CEO Joe Ellis (Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver), President of Football Operations John Elway (Denver Broncos Charities), General Manager George Paton (Alzheimer's Association), Senior Vice President of Strategy Brittany Bowlen (Alzheimer's Association and Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver) and Head Coach Vic Fangio (Youth and High School Football/Dunmore High School) will all showcase their custom shoes this season.

The My Cause My Cleats initiative was created in 2016 and was designed for NFL players to showcase the charitable cause that is most important to them in front of a national audience. Participating players will have the opportunity to wear custom-designed cleats in support of their chosen cause during Week 13 games.

Broncos players will be able to wear custom cause-related cleats in Sunday's game against Kansas City (11 a.m. MST kickoff). Fans may bid on select game-issued player cleats via the 2021 Denver Broncos My Cause My Cleats Auction from Dec. 8-18, helping players raise funds for their chosen causes.

Please see below for a current list of Broncos players' registered causes for Week 13.
