LARRY FITZGERALD'S PINK SHOES WERE TRIBUTE TO HIS MOTHER
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign that resonates in particular with Larry Fitzgerald.
The Arizona receiver lost his mother Carol to the disease in 2003. She battled breast cancer for five year before dying at the age of 47.
As a tribute to her, Fitzgerald had "Carol" written in his eye black for Thursday night's game against St. Louis, and also wore a pair of special-edition cleats, pink Nike Vapor Talon Elites.
"Carol" was inscribed on the sides of the shoes.
For every new follower he gets on Facebook and Twitter this month Fitzgerald is donating 25 cents to breast cancer research, plus $5,000 for every touchdown he scores and $1,000 for each reception in October.
Fitzgerald didn't score during the 17-3 loss to the Rams, but he did make eight catches.
