NFL players support children's hospitals across the country

Week 13 of the National Football League was filled with touchdowns for charities when players were allowed to wear customized cleats to represent causes that they’re passionate about as part of the #MyCauseMyCleats campaign. 

We are so thankful that so many NFL players (13!) wore custom cleats to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer chose to show his support for CMN Hospitals, Children’s Hospital Colorado and our 2016-17 Colorado Champion, Carson.
