Bears announce their “My Cause My Cleats” participants

San Francisco 49ers v Chicago Bears

I mentioned the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats campaign in yesterday’s Ten Thoughts, and today the Chicago Bears have announced the players that will be participating.

My Cause My Cleats is a way for players to bring awareness to causes that are important to them, or to charities that they are directly involved with, by wearing specially designed cleats during games. This season a record number of players around the NFL will be involved, with more than 1,000 participating, but other members of the teams will be getting involved as well.
