FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, DC (Dec. 10, 2014) – Washington Redskins Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan celebrated the holidays with patients at Children’s National Health System Tuesday as part of “Ryan’s Reindeer Rush” holiday program. Kerrigan spent the morning towing a wagon full of footballs and 8x10s to personally deliver to the children, patients and families.

 

“It feels great to be able to spend a day with these kids and help them get in the holiday spirit,” Kerrigan said. “It’s nice to see the impact we are making through the smiles on their faces. That’s what Blitz for the Better Foundation is all about. We want to give support, not only physically and monetarily, but give a boost to morale as well. ”

 

"We’re thrilled that Ryan Kerrigan visited Children’s National,” said Patricia Jasper-Zellner, Director, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Children’s National Health System. “We are grateful for the time he spent with our patients, and it brought a lot of joy to kids and their families during this time of year.”
