Two Upcoming Redskins Charities That Need Your Support

Long-time Redskins (in today's terms) Reed Doughty and Lorenzo Alexander both have upcoming, outdoor charity events this April. Please help support them in any way you can.

Reed Doughty: Sunday, April 3, Reston, VA - Northern Virginia Kidney Walk

Reed has the very modest goal of raising $1,000 and is half way there at $525. Hogs Haven just submitted $30, so please contribute what you can in support of our players. More after the jump, but he's also welcoming fans to walk with him.

Lorenzo Alexander, Saturday, April 23, Reston Town Center, VA - Ride to Provide


Ride to Provide is an annual charity bike event hosted by Washinton Redskins, Lorenzo Alexander and Kedric Golston. Lorenzo, Kedric, Redskin teammates and media personalities, will be joining hundreds of children and adults on the W&OD Railroad Regional Park Trail for a 10-35 mile scenic bike ride that begins and ends at Reston Town Center.  

The bike ride heads west on the trail toward Leesburg through the beautiful, Virginia countryside. The bike ride is a fun and challenging event that lets both children, parents and the recreational cyclist raise money for Lorenzo's ACES Foundation and hundreds of orphaned babies, poverty-stricken women and children in Africa. There are three different distances to ride: 10 mile ride, 20 mile ride and 35 mile ride.   

Reed: Just as I had been drafted to the Redskins, Katie, my wife, and I were waiting anxiously for the birth of our first child. But in August 2006, Katie went into labor five weeks early. Our son, Micah, was born prematurely with end stage renal disease, or kidney failure.

The first months of Micah's life consisted of medications, daily dialysis for almost a year, and trips to the emergency room. Finally, when Micah was 18 months old, he was ready for a kidney transplant. Katie donated one of her kidneys to him. 

Both Katie and Micah are in great health now, and we have welcomed one other child, Caleb, into our family since and have another one on the way! We couldn't have fought through our hardship without those supporting us, and in Micah's honor we are going to walk in the Northern Virginia Kidney Walk to support the cause of the National Kidney Foundation.
