Washington, DC-On Tuesday, July 29, Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley invited patients from Children’s National Medical Center to attend a special event with him at a closed training camp practice. After receiving a tour of the building and watching the Redskins practice, the patients had the opportunity to meet with the players and coaches who signed autographs and took pictures with the children. In addition, Cooley provided each patient in attendance with a gym bag full of items including a portable game system, games, Redskins apparel, and fan items.

Each year, members of the Redskins visit patients and families at Children’s National Medical Center, which is organized by the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. Cooley’s special visit for the patients out to Redskins training camp was the first such visit for the patients at Children’s National.
