PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- When the Steelers take the field at Acrisure Stadium on Sunday, players will be sporting unique cleats aimed at raising awareness for different charities as part of the NFL's 'My Cause, My Cleats' initiative.   

The team announced on Monday what charities players would be representing and released photos of the cleats they'll be wearing. 

In addition to raising awareness for a charity of the player's choosing, the players also have the option of auctioning off the game-worn cleats with 100% of the funds raised being donated to the charity. 

In the past, players have worn cleats in support of Children's Hospital, the Pittsburgh synagogue mass shooting, homelessness and hunger, local charities, and many others.
