NFL’s Josh Andrews Raises Awareness with My Cause My Cleats

We are so honored that Josh Andrews, offensive guard for the NFL’s New York Jets, is supporting Project Sleep via My Cause My Cleats. Through this program, NFL players have the opportunity to pick a cause that is important to them and represent their chosen organization on custom designed cleats. On December 1, 2020, Andrews announced that he would use the platform to champion awareness of sleep health and sleep conditions with Project Sleep:

This year I will be supporting @project_sleep as my cause, which brings awareness and advocates [for] sleep health and sleep conditions…. Thank you @remrunner for helping me with my journey with narcolepsy and realizing that there are so many more people in the same situation as I am.”

Cool Cleats Supporting Great Causes

Also on Dec. 1, 2020, the Jets released stunning photos of Andrews’ and the other Jets players’ My Cause My Cleats custom cleats on their website here. All players have the option to donate their cleats to NFL Auction where individuals can bid on the cleats, with proceeds going to the respective causes selected by players.

Awareness in Action

On Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020, Andrews wore his custom Project Sleep cleats in the Jets game against the Las Vegas Raiders at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Fans of the Jets and Project Sleep alike were thrilled to spot Andrews’ special cleats on TV and in many game day photos!

“To see Josh sport these cleats in the NFL is deeply meaningful to our entire community,” said Project Sleep’s President & CEO, Julie Flygare. “Josh exemplifies that people with narcolepsy are taking on big challenges and overcoming adversity daily. We are proud to be cheering for Josh and the Jets this season!”

Raising Awareness

Project Sleep aims to improve public health by educating individuals about the importance of sleep health and sleep disorders. We educate and empower individuals using events, campaigns, and programs to bring people together and talk about sleep as a pillar of health.
