On May 31st, Redskins’ Ryan Kerrigan unveiled his sixth Kerrigan’s Korner at Inova Children’s Hospital on the Hematology/Oncology/Ortho Trauma floor on Tuesday afternoon.

The Kerrigan’s Korner, a program of Ryan Kerrigan’s Blitz for the Better Foundation, will provide patients and families access to technology as a means for relaxation and communication during their hospital stays. The mobile technology cart is filled with laptops, video games, movies, a TV, and more.

“It’s important for kids to have access to games and technology,” said Kerrigan. “Not only is it a distraction from what they’re going through, it is a chance for them to just be kids.”

The Kerrigan’s Korner will be an outlet for hundreds of patients and families each month. “I am glad to be back at Inova to open another Kerrigan’s Korner,” said Kerrigan. “This Korner is special because it’s sponsored by the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. The Redskins have been supportive on and off the field and it means a lot for them to work with my Blitz for the Better Foundation.”

While unveiling the Kerrigan’s Korner, Ryan Kerrigan had the opportunity to visit patients as well as the staff.

The primary focus of Ryan Kerrigan's Blitz for the Better Foundation is to provide opportunities, support and resources to children and families in need in the Greater Washington D.C. area.
