MILPITAS, CA — On Sunday, December 3, 2023, members of the San Francisco 49ers organization will participate in this year’s My Cause My Cleats initiative, presented by Shoe Palace. Coaches, staff and players will raise awareness for causes and nonprofit organizations important to them through customized footwear. Quarterback Brock Purdy has elected to support Child Advocates of Silicon Valley and will wear specially designed cleats with the agency’s logo in Week 13’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
“We are honored Brock Purdy chose Child Advocates as his beneficiary for this season’s My Cause My Cleats campaign,” said Child Advocates CEO Frederick J. Ferrer. “Although children in foster care are some of the most vulnerable children in our community, they are often overlooked or left out of the conversation. For Brock Purdy to include children in foster care and raise awareness about the work that we do, is absolutely remarkable. We are extremely grateful that Brock Purdy has chosen to SHOW UP for the children and youth we serve.”
All players will have the opportunity to donate their customized cleats to NFL Auction. All proceeds raised from sales will be donated to the respective organizations selected by the players.
