Ryan Clark To Wear Red Cleats To Promote Sickle Cell Awareness

Washington Redskins safety Ryan Clark will wear red cleats to promote sickle cell anemia awareness against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football.

As seen below, these cleats will have sickle cell facts, the sickle cell symbol and Cure League – his foundation dedicated to raising money for sickle cell disease reach, clinical care and increased awareness — on them:

In 2007 while in Denver to face the Broncos, Clark experienced severe discomfort, later finding out that he has sickle cell trait.

As explained on CureLeague.org, Clark returned Pittsburgh where he had emergency surgery to remove his spleen and gallbladder.

The strong, healthy 205-pound Clark had excruciating pain in his left side. He returned to Pittsburgh and underwent a battery of tests at UPMC. Clark’s test results found sickle cell-related damage to his spleen. Doctors performed emergency surgery to remove his spleen and gallbladder, sidelining Clark for the remainder of the Steelers’ season.

Two years later, Clark’s sister-and-law died from complications of sickle cell disease at the age of 27.

After tomorrow’s game, the cleats will be auctioned off on CureLeague.org, with all proceeds going to sickle cell research.

The 14-year veteran will also be making a $25,000 donation as well.
