Check out McLeod's epic cleats for two great causes originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
It's hard to believe that October is almost over and we're already in Week 6 of the 2020 NFL season.
While fans are limited stadiums that are allowing them and this has been a year like never before, that doesn't mean athletes are using their platforms any less for important messages. One creative way to do so has always been special cleat designs.
On the surface, they simply look like specialty cleats with the iconic Alice in Wonderland character, the Cheshire Cat. The color combination of pink and purple though have a much deeper meaning.
October is well-known for Breast Cancer awareness month, so that is where the pink comes into play. He also wanted to acknowledge Pancreatic Cancer and the purple raises awareness for that. While Pancreatic Cancer awareness month doesn't start until Nov. 1, there's never a wrong time to use your platform and get a conversation going.
Way to go, McLeod.
