The Washington Redskins Draft Day Dash presented by the Great American Milk Drive took place at FedExField on Saturday, May 2. In an effort to strengthen community involvement, the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation launched two competitions to further promote health and wellness within area schools and businesses. The Redskins School Team Challenge was established to reward the school with the most registered runners – including parents, administrators, teachers and students.
The Corporate Team Community Challenge was open to all local businesses and non-profits, with the team with the most 5K participants also set to receive a $10,000 donation in their name to a charity of their choice.
A portion of proceeds from the Draft Day Dash presented by the Great American Milk Drive benefitted the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, whose mission is to make a positive impact on youth development in the greater Washington, D.C. area, focusing on health and wellness, education and community outreach. The Draft Day Dash is one of many events that demonstrate the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation's commitment to ensuring Redskins fans of all ages stay active and take steps to combat childhood obesity.
