New York Giants’ football player, Nick Gates, dons National CASA/GAL logo on gameday cleats

Gameday cleats

Nick Gates of the New York Giants football team wore custom-designed cleats highlighting the National CASA/GAL logo as part of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats. According to the NFL, “Players have the opportunity to pick a cause that is important to them and represent their chosen organization on custom-designed cleats.” 

Gates donned the CASA/GAL cleats on Sunday, December 4th, 2022, at 1:00 pm ET/10:00 am PT, when the NY Giants played the Washington Commanders. Gates’ support in wearing the CASA/GAL cleats aimed to bring awareness to the National CASA/GAL mission and critical need for additional CASA/GAL volunteers across the nation. 

In a post from the Eighth Judicial District Court in Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada, Gates stated, “I’ve always had people in my corner advocating for me. I want to pay-it-forward and spotlight the huge need for CASA volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected kids. In my hometown of Las Vegas alone, there are over 3,200 children in the child welfare system who need a CASA volunteer to speak for their best interests.”
