Breast Cancer Awareness

Think Pink!

During the month of October, the Washington Redskins collaborate with the American Cancer Society to promote Breast Cancer Awareness through the initiative, "A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives." During the 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness game, fans were welcomed by owner Daniel M. Snyder and his wife Mrs. Tanya Snyder, the NFL Breast Cancer Spokesperson. Mr. and Mrs. Snyder as well as CareFirst and hundreds of members of Zeta Tau Alpha distributed THINK PINK! Ribbons and breast cancer awareness educational materials as fans entered FedExField. In honor of the five million pink ribbons distributed this year, the Redskins and ZTA created a human pink ribbon on the field during pre-game ceremonies.

All-Star Survivors Celebration

In association with the BCA game, Mrs. Tanya Snyder, the Redskins Charitable Foundation and ACS hosted the sixth-annual All-Star Survivors Celebration for area women currently battling breast cancer. The breast cancer survivors, or "All-Stars", were treated to a personal makeup consultation, massage therapy and a private tour of Redskins Park, as well as new jeans from Gap Inc., wigs, scarves, makeup and a custom-made Redskins jersey. As a parting gift, the ladies were also surprised with tickets to the Redskins BCA game where they created the fan tunnel for player introductions.

Redskins Alumni Military Appreciation
Meet n' Greet

During the 2013 Redskins Alumni Homecoming Weekend, approximately 60 Redskins alumni and their families teamed up with the Redskins Charitable Foundation to give back to the community by joining wounded warriors and active duty soldiers at a military appreciation event in Fort Belvoir’s recently opened USO Warrior and Family Center. Warriors and soldiers had the opportunity to watch footage from Super Bowl XXII, enjoy lunch, and participate in head-to-head trivia challenges with alumni. Alumni and their families also assembled healthy snack packs to be distributed to children on base. Before departure, all warriors and soldiers in attendance were presented with tickets to the Alumni Homecoming game later that weekend.
