The Redskins Charitable Foundation is embarking on several initiatives to give back to the community throughout the 2012 football season.
From teaching children the importance of physical fitness and injury prevention to recognizing local breast cancer survivors, the Redskins are doing their part to positively impact surrounding Washington, D.C. metro area communities.
