Why Is the NFL Wearing Tie-Dye and Rainbow Colors?

The NFL, throughout its history, has chosen to use its platform for good and has been a real pioneer in their efforts to spearhead important causes. The Crucial Catch campaign is another one of the many good things the league stays committed to doing. Since 2009, the NFL and the American Cancer Society have come to battle cancer together.

They have raised more than $24 million to save lives across the country. Tie-dye designs were introduced to promote the Crucial Catch Program initiated by the ACS as the program helps with the detection and early treatment of cancer, with the proceeds going to ACS to help fight cancer and fund research further.

NFL Talks About The Crucial Catch Campaign

When the NFL announced the introduction of the Crucial Catch campaign, they released a short statement surrounding the initiative.

“All clubs support the league’s mission of early detection and risk reduction, and each year they elect to support one or multiple cancers. Throughout October, NFL Crucial Catch games raise awareness for cancer prevention with players, coaches, fans, and referees in apparel supporting multiple types of cancer, as well as additional on-field and in-stadium branding. In the United States, the NFL has raised over 22 million dollars for the American Cancer Society to provide screenings in underserved communities.”
