The Redskins Charitable Foundation has planned several events to take place during the duration of Training Camp, including a Motorcycle Rally presented by Richmond Harley-Davidson on July 27.
Washington Redskins fans have the opportunity to win a custom team-autographed Redskins Harley-Davidson Motorcycle through purchase of raffle tickets, which are on sale from July 27-August 16. The proceeds will go directly towards the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation efforts in Richmond.
The event will feature a police-escorted ride of three-hundred motorcyclists leaving from Richmond Harley-Davidson, located at 10441 Washington Hwy in Glen Allen, at 1:00 p.m. on July 27 and arriving at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Camp Center. The riders will travel down Route 1, turn right on Hilliard Road, and turn left on Lakeside Avenue until they reach the sports complex. Expect traffic delays, as all traffic lights will be stopped for the riders.
Skins fans are invited to Richmond Harley-Davidson for the motorcycle rally from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a BBQ cookout with the Redskins Cheerleaders. The custom Redskins motorcycle will be revealed at 12:30 p.m. and will travel with the motorcyclists to the Training Camp facility. There will be a Training Camp Kickoff Party at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Camp Center following the motorcycle ride, where the custom bike will be displayed on site as a prize for the lucky raffle winner.
Fans can register to participate in the rally, ride, and kickoff party at www.redskins.com. Participation in the festivities is free, but space is limited.
