The Steelers defensive lineman donated a pair of game-worn cleats to support the Cecil and David Rosenthal Memorial Fund and the 10.27 Healing Partnership, according to a release on Thursday. David and Cecil Rosenthal were two of the 11 lives tragically taken at the Tree of Life Synagogue on Oct. 27, 2018. They are the brothers of former Steelers employee Michele Rosenthal.
Heyward wore the cleats last season as part of the My Cause, My Cleats campaign. NFL players showcased causes that are important to them with custom cleats.
