WASHINGTON D.C. – Redskins’ Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan launched the first “Kerrigan’s Korner” at the in-patient surgery wing at Children’s National Health System on Friday. At a private ribbon cutting, Kerrigan unveiled an entire locker filled with electronics for patients and their families to use and check out during extended stays. The locker is stocked with kid-friendly portable DVD players, video gaming systems, and iPads, Kindles and Leap Pads. The locker will provide a welcome entertainment outlet and a useful channel of communication for thousands of patients and families each month.

 

After the ribbon cutting, Kerrigan passed out items to a few patients in attendance to show them the ropes and then signed autographs and visited patients too ill to attend the ceremony.

 

“I’m so proud and honored to be able to launch Kerrigan’s Korner,” said Kerrigan. “We’ve been working with Children’s National Health System for a while now, and this has been something we’ve wanted to do since launching the foundation.”

 

Kerrigan’s Korner is a charitable program of Ryan Kerrigan’s Blitz for the Better Foundation. This Korner was built in memory of dedicated Blitz for the Better Executive Board Member Wayne K. Curry who passed away last summer. Funds for the electronics hub were raised at Kerrigan’s Annual Celebrity Waiter Night. Thanks to the additional funding from Betty Buck, Bill Riley, Grand Hyatt Washington, Hyatt Regency Washington, Virginia Linens, Chesapeake Public Strategies and Thompson Creek, every item on Children’s National wish list was fulfilled. Items will be replaced and/or supplemented on an annual basis with a gift card from the foundation.

 

Next up for Ryan Kerrigan’s Blitz for the Better Foundation is the 3rd Annual Celebrity Waiter Night this fall. Date will be announced soon.
