The Cleveland Browns will join the rest of the NFL on Sunday by participating in the league’s annual My Cause My Cleats campaign.

Started eight years ago, the campaign allows players, coaches and staff members to reveal their off-field interests by wearing custom-designed cleats highlighting a cause or organization that has personally impacted their lives, ranging from social justice to youth sports engagement, healthcare accessibility, education and more.

This year the Browns are working with Cleveland-based artist Jonathan Hrusovsky, who owns Hrusovsky’s Custom Kicks and Soles by Sir, on the designs of their respective cleats.

On Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, 35 Browns players and head coach Kevin Stefanski will wear custom designs in support of numerous charitable organizations, ranging from left guard Joel Bitonio (A Kid Again Northern Ohio Chapter) to safety Grant Delpit (Alcoholics Anonymous), running back Jerome Ford (Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence), cornerback Greg Newsome II (Northeast Ohio Women’s Sports Alliance) and cornerback Mike Ford Jr. (United Way of Greater Cleveland).

In addition to the My Cause My Cleats campaign, the Browns announced a donation of $25,000 to United Way of Greater Cleveland, a long-standing community partner of the Browns.

Following this week’s games, players may choose to auction off their cleats through NFL Auction, with the proceeds donated to their respective charities.
