The Minnesota Vikings are participating in a 'My Cause, My Cleats' awareness campaign. Duluth's own C.J. Ham suprised his mother by showing him his custom cleats he picked for this Sunday's game. The cleats were unveiled, and show a portrait of his Mother Tina. He will wear them this Sunday VS The Lions.

His mother Tina was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018. It initially appeared to be stage 2, but after surgery they discovered it had progressed to stage 4. C.J. Ham, who is well know in our community for being a very positive, family focused person decided to honor his mother and chose the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network as his cause.
