LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation will host the Ryan Kerrigan Topgolf Challenge at Topgolf Loudoun on Monday, Nov. 7 from 6 – 9 p.m.
For one evening only, Kerrigan and his Redskins teammates will step off the field to join alumni legends and Redskins celebrities to play alongside guests for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Topgolf is designed for golfers at every level, from aspiring pros to those who've never played, so all fans are welcome to purchase tickets.
Tickets and sponsorships are available for purchase at: http://bit.ly/2dE0p9M.
In honor of Kerrigan, the Redskins' 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year, all event proceeds will benefit Ryan Kerrigan's Blitz for the Better Foundation, which aims to provide opportunities, resources, support and encouragement to seriously ill, physically-challenged and special need children and their families. Blitz for the Better serves more than 18,000 children annually.
Funds raised will specifically go toward initiatives such as the installation of additional Kerrigan's Korners in local hospitals. Kerrigan's Korner provides patients and their family access to electronics during hospital stays. They serve as a source of entertainment, a portal for communication and a diversion during treatment and recovery.
Between his work with the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation (WRCF) and individual efforts, Kerrigan has focused on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and nutrition choices, supporting childhood cancer awareness and supporting children and families in need.
"Ryan cares deeply about this community and has put a great deal of thought into the causes he supports," said Jane Rodgers, Executive Director of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. "As a result, his ability to make a difference and his impact is truly powerful. Once he decides to get involved, he does it with the same level of intensity he shows on the field."
