DENVER, Colo. – A group of youth mentorship programs, including Goodwill's Youth Career Development Program, are teaming up with Chris Harris, Jr. of the Denver Broncos for the NFL's shoe design contest! The league started the “My Cause My Cleats” program in 2016 as a players can wear cleats designed to represent a cause of their choice. Many players will commission the hottest designer to create their cleats, but the Broncos' own Chris Harris, Jr. has partnered with Mentor Colorado to allow students to design a cleat for him!
A mentee from one of the following organizations is currently working on designing a clear for Chris Harris, Jr.:
- Goodwill Industries of Denver
- Denver Kids Inc.
- Denver Urban Scholars
- Friends First
- Gunnison Valley Mentors Partners
