Did you know, Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard auctioned off his cleats to benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation? NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign donated 100% of the proceeds to PFF. The NFL puts this campaign on every year and many players get involved.
When Howard was 12 years old he lost his father, Dr. Reginald B. Howard, to pulmonary fibrosis. His father battled the disease for nine years until he passed at age 52. In this heart warming video, you can’t help but feel and see the genuine love Howard has for his father.
“Even after his diagnosis, Dad never gave up on life and his family. I want to share his strength with people fighting this disease. Keep having hope and faith, and keep believing there will be a cure for pulmonary fibrosis,” – Howard
The NFL player committed to help raise awareness and funds for the foundation. Howard has been involved for the past two years and even raised funds on the 10 year anniversary of his fathers death.
