When Seahawks players take the field for Sunday's game in Los Angeles, they'll not only be representing their team and their fans back in Seattle, they'll also be representing various causes that are near and dear to their hearts.

As part of the NFL's annual My Cause My Cleats initiative, Seahawks players, coaches, members of the front office and Seahawks Legends will wear custom cleats/shoes representing different non-profit organizations that make a difference in Seattle and around the world.

"It's an opportunity to tap our guys on the shoulder and remind them that they can give of themselves in some way," said Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who will represent the Teaching for Black Lives campaign. "By amplifying somebody else's voice, giving somebody else a chance or whatever they decide. I like the freedom of it and the creativity of it for the guys to have a chance to express themselves and do what they do. I just think it's a cool idea. And in particular, when you get somebody's word out for them, or if you're representing a group or an effort or campaign that somebody's on, you're doing good stuff. And the more we can stay connected to the fact that that's available to us, it's good. And our guys have always been great about it, but this is a pretty specific shot at doing something, so I encourage everybody to take part."

Players will support causes ranging from social justice to cancer awareness to mental health to gun violence prevention to youth empowerment, among others, by wearing custom cleats during Sunday's game against the Rams. After the game, many of the cleats will be available for auction to raise money for the charities represented by those shoes.
