Latavius Murray CNYSPCA Cleats Auction Bidding Ends: 12-13-17 11.59 PM EST

This is pulled from Latavius Murray’s website about why he chose the CNYSPCA as his cause:  Ever since I lost my best friend Jonathan Diaz a year ago, it has been my life’s goal to try and fulfill his dreams and wishes. His love for animals was just as important as his love for family, they’re an extension of the family. Before he passed he donated what he could to the CNYspca, an animal shelter back home in upstate New York. I’m honored to represent both Jonathan and the CNYspca this weekend for #MyCauseMyCleats to promote kindness to animals by auctioning my custom, signed cleats.

Help me support the Central New York SPCA, a local animal shelter in Syracuse, NY.  All proceeds from this auction will help support their mission of preventing cruelty to animals.
