CENTRAL POINT, OR – For a second year in a row, Denver Broncos’ (NFL) Tight End Eric Saubert (#82) has chosen to represent Dogs for Better Lives in the annual My Cause My Cleats Initiative. Saubert will be wearing specially designed cleats to raise awareness about Dogs for Better Lives (DBL) in his upcoming Sunday, December 4th game at the Baltimore Ravens. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. EST.
The custom cleats that Saubert will be wearing feature DBL’s branding, as well as an image of a yellow lab. In 2021, Saubert’s custom cleats were auctioned off to raise funds for Dogs for Better Lives.
“We are honored that Eric Saubert chose to represent us for a second year in a row,” stated CEO Bryan Williams. “His continued efforts to raise awareness about our life-changing Assistance Dogs is so appreciated.”
The My Cause My Cleats initiative was created in 2016 and was designed for NFL players to showcase a nonprofit that means a lot to them in front of a national audience. Participating players have the opportunity to wear custom-designed cleats in support of their chosen cause during Week 13 games.
According to the Denver Broncos, 55 players will be participating in this year’s My Cause My Cleats initiative to raise awareness for various causes and nonprofit organizations, including Dogs for Better Lives.
Dogs for Better Lives trains and places Assistance Dogs at zero cost to clients, which is made possible by generous donor support. DBL has a goal of raising $216,000 by December 31, 2022, to sponsor four additional Assistance Dogs in 2023. To make a gift in support of this goal, visit here.
