“Some light needs to be shed on bullying, especially for those who cannot speak up for themselves.” — Randall Telfer
Through the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats platform, Randall supports Boo 2 Bullying, a nonprofit organization founded in California dedicated to eliminating bullying in the school system and beyond. His cleats in 2016 and 2017 highlight an organization whose work takes on a personal meaning, as bullying has impacted Randall’s family members. The initiative is a continuation of his desire to strive for change and love for all. He has helped share the unity message from the Cleveland Browns through action and conversation by participating in a police ride-along, discussing important topics with local students during a town hall on police perception in neighborhoods and equality and representing the team when speaking on those subjects with media. Randall’s commitment to the community goes beyond Cleveland. In his hometown of Los Angeles, he visits children currently receiving treatment at LA Children’s Hospital each offseason to brighten their days. In 2016, he joined the ‘Team Tackle’ initiative for the American Diabetes Association, which unites 45 current and former NFL players to raise awareness for diabetes.
Randall, who says his on-field play is inspired by his grandmother, sees his responsibility in the NFL beyond football with a platform that helps create positive change.
