CENTRAL POINT, OR – Announced earlier this week, Denver Broncos’ (NFL) Tight End Eric Saubert (#82) will be wearing specially designed cleats in his upcoming Sunday (Dec 5th) game with the visiting Kansas City Chiefs, to raise awareness for Dogs for Better Lives (DBL).“I’m very passionate about dogs and came across your organization,” stated Eric Saubert. “What you guys are doing is amazing, and I’m happy to represent y’all.”
The custom cleats that Saubert will be wearing, will include DBL’s logo and branding, as well as an image of his Husky dog, Abe.
According to the Denver Broncos, nearly 65 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.
“We were excited to learn about the Denver Broncos’ My Cause My Cleats initiative and very honored to participate in their national awareness program,” stated CEO Bryan Williams. “And now Eric Saubert has just picked up 34 [staff] new super-fans of the Broncos.”
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 (6:20 p.m. MST kickoff).
Starting with #GivingTuesday and #CryptoGivingTuesday (Nov 30th) and commencing with the end-of-year Holiday Match campaign, Dogs for Better Lives has a goal of raising more than $255,000 to sponsor five Assistance Dogs this holiday season.
