More than 30 Washington Football Team alumni and Sean Taylor's family joined the Washington Football Charitable Foundation to create an outdoor learning lab at Burrville Elementary School in Washington, D.C., during Alumni Homecoming Weekend on Oct. 16, in partnership with Out Teach and Pepsi Stronger Together. This learning lab will provide more than 325 elementary school students with an interactive space to grow their STEM knowledge. The learning lab was built in honor of the Sean Taylor Legacy Project.
