The Cowboys began voluntary workouts last week, which means players are hitting the gym very hard as they prepare themselves for the rigors of the NFL season.

One Dallas wide receiver will be wearing that sweat all week though, as Devin Street is skipping the showers for seven days to raise awareness for a charity that brings potable water to Kenyan communities.

Street and Well Aware are launching the eighth annual “Shower Strike” initiative, and the third-year player is hoping it helps raise funds for those who do not have the luxury of modern plumbing.

“For these people we are partnering with, a clean drink of water is a luxury. A shower isn't even an option. I think it's the least I can do to skip a couple showers so that others can have a chance in life.”

Former Texas quarterback Case McCoy and D-Leaguer Xavier Silas are also joining the campaign, which hopes to raise $150,000 to help provide clean water.
