Redskins Players Think Pink In Offseason

When you think of the pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness what comes to your mind? Is it a friend or family member who succumbed to the disease, or the wife, mother, or sister who beat it? No matter what you think of, chances are seeing the pink ribbon triggers an emotional reaction.

When Redskins Josh Morgan, Nick Sundberg and Pierre Garcon see the pink ribbon, they’re inspired to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation, making strides against breast cancer.

The Canadian Embassy hosted the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Kick Off event before Saturday’s race, Garcon, Morgan, and Sundberg attended.

The event was very memorable for those who met Sundberg, Garcon and Morgan.

When Garcon first came to the nation’s capital, he immediately wanted to get involved and reached out to Morgan, who is the One Team for the Cure ambassador for Washington D.C. Morgan’s Godmother was diagnosed in 2009 which made him want to help the women fighting breast cancer.

A month later in October, he had a new cast put on and it was hot pink.
