As part of the NFL’s 100th season, we’re inviting you to join us in a Huddle for 100, an effort to inspire 1 million people to volunteer 100 minutes of their time. Work alongside us and our Redskins players, alumni, staff, corporate partners and more to make a meaningful contribution to our community!
Check out the steps to get involved below, share what you’re doing and encourage your friends and family to join a Huddle too. Throughout the Huddle for 100 initiative, the NFL will give participating fans the chance to win a variety of prizes, including game tickets, team gear or a donation to a charity they select when they track their participation. Fans can track their volunteer efforts on social media using both the #RedskinsHuddleFor100 and #Sweepstakes hashtags. Together, we can make a difference.
