When right tackle Tyler Polumbus re-signed with the Washington Redskins in March, he admitted that he had some unfinished business here.
A starter for all 16 games last season en route to paving the way for the league’s top rushing attack, Polumbus has vowed to dedicate this season to Scoring for Good, a program designed to provide children the opportunity to attend Camp Kessem.
Camp Kessum’s mission is to “provide children affected by a parent’s cancer with a supportive, lifelong camp community that recognizes and understands their unique needs” and has various sites set up across the country.
For every five pancake blocks that he will score this season, Polumbus will donate money to Scoring for Good.
While fans probably won’t be able to contribute via pancake blocks, they can track Polumbus’ progress all season long and donate along the way as well.
“My foundation Tyler’s Kids Outreach (TKO) [has] partnered with Camp Kesem to send kids who are affected by a parent fighting cancer and what we’re doing is sending them away to camp for week,” Polumbus said. “It provides them with useful support and counseling and so for every five pancakes I get this year we’ll be sending a kid to camp.”
TKO was created by Polumbus and wife Liz to “enrich the lives of children through family, faith and personal growth.”
Polumbus, who grew up in Colorado and attended college there, said the Scoring for Good will be next summer in his home state.
Scoring for Good will also be launching an app available to all iPhone and Android users by Week 2 of the preseason where Polumbus will update everyone when he has reached another five pancake blocks.
We will also update you as well.
