The Washington Redskins have been one of the biggest supporters of finding a cure for breast cancer.
Last October Chris Cooley hosted the fifth annual All-Star Survivors Celebration at Redskins Park, where 20 ladies or better yet “All-Stars”, were treated to a ladies day with No. 47 himself.
Earlier today Tanya Snyder, wife of Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, was recognized as the American Cancer Society Mother of the Year for her efforts to end breast cancer.
When Josh Morgan returned to the hometown that he kept so close to his heart even when he was across the country in San Francisco, he made an effort to reach out in the local community to touch the lives of his fellow DMV citizens.
Morgan has spent countless hours in classrooms speaking with the youngest of Redskins Nation and was the grand marshal for the Cherry Blossom Festival—a Washington, D.C. exclusive—taking in the sights and sounds of downtown that were reminiscent of his childhood days.
Now, he is ready to take those same streets again to end breast cancer once and for all.
On Saturday May 11th Team Morgan, captained by the 2012 receptions leader, will join hundreds of others for the 2013 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
This will be the inaugural appearance for Team Morgan in the festivities, but don’t let the group’s first race day fool you.
Team Morgan’s goal is to collect at least $15,000 (to match his jersey number). All proceeds will go towards research to gather the data necessary to stop breast cancer.
