Virginia Football alumni and current Minnesota Viking Anthony “Ant” Harris will be supporting the One Love Foundation this weekend as he will wear custom cleats for the “My Cleats My Cause” NFL initiative.
In Honor of fellow wahoo Yeardley Love and to raise awareness, in order to help ensure everyone understands the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship, I am wearing @join1love themed cleats for #MyCauseMyCleats in tomorrow’s game.

The One Love Foundation was started in 2010 following the tragic death of Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love who was killed by her boyfriend, George Huguely. They focus on “empowering young people to improve their healthy relationship IQ for themselves and others; improving all our lives and changing the pipeline that leads to abuse”.
Streaking the Lawn has partnered with One Love for four years now with our “Pack Line Pledge”, triggered any time the Virginia Basketball team holds an opponent under 55 points (just like the Hoos did today against Lehigh). In just three years, almost $20,000 has been raised by committed Cavalier fans for the One Love Foundation.
According to the NFL, players this weekend will be “wearing their hearts on their feet” as they show off causes near and dear to them. Dallas’ Zack Martin wore cleats during Thursday’s game with Washington that were dedicated to Virginia alum Chris Long’s Waterboys organization which helps bring clean water to impoverished towns in Africa.
Long is also wearing cleats dedicated to Waterboys, designed by children living in areas that the foundation supports.
