We will kick off the Burgundy & Gold Game with our Draft Party on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Come see which of these ladies will be representing Team Burgundy and Team Gold. The teams will be coached once again by fullback Darrel Young and tight end Niles Paul. Team Burgundy -- Darrel Young's team --was the winner of the first annual game.
The Burgundy & Gold Game was created to raise funds and awareness for the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation & have partnered this year with Special Olympics Virginia.
The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, the non-profit philanthropic arm of the team, combines the influence and popularity of the Washington Redskins with the resources and assets of area corporations. Founded by owner Dan Snyder, the Charitable Foundation is guided by its Leadership Council that consists of CEOs who help shape and define the philanthropic efforts of the Redskins to achieve a measurable impact on young people in the areas of education, community outreach and health and wellness.

Special Olympics Virginia is a public non-profit 501(c) 3 dedicated to providing ear-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. Their mission remains as vital today as it did when the movement was founded in 1968. Our program, however, has transcended beyond just sports. Special Olympics Virginia's year round programs in health, education, community and sports address inactivity, injustice, intolerance and social isolation by encouraging and empowering people with intellectual disabilities.
