DARCARS Automotive Group to Sponsor Annual Dreams for Kids DC Football Clinic with the Washington Redskins and Special Olympics


Bethesda, MD – For the third year, DARCARS Automotive Group will be sponsoring the DFKDC Football Clinic with the Washington Redskins, the event will be taking place on Sunday, July 21st, 2019 from 1PM to 3:00 PM at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia.
 
The Redskins’ practice field will see children of all ages on Sunday, July 21st, as Redskin players grace the field to work with children with physical and developmental disabilities. As part of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation initiative to impact the lives of children that need it most through health and wellness programs; the Redskins will meet 100 kids on the field for an inspiring day. Dreams For Kids DC (DFKDC) is a local nonprofit that provides life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential. All too often children with disabilities are isolated and don't have adequate opportunities to partake in physical activities that other children are able to experience daily.  
 
“For the past three years, the DARCARS family has proudly sponsored Dreams For Kids DC sports clinics, which have an amazing impact on the lives of children working to overcome physical and developmental disabilities,” said DARCARS CEO John Darvish. “We are excited to continue that partnership this year by sponsoring the Dreams For Kids DC Football clinic with the Washington Redskins and I am personally looking forward to volunteering at this fantastic event.” 
Former Washington Redskin, current Redskins Defensive Quality Control Coach, and DFKDC Ambassador Kyshoen Jarrett will return to lead the day with a moving speech regarding his own experience with his brother’s disability. 
 
Dreams For Kids DC clinics are adaptive clinics held once or twice a month for children with disabilities aged 4 – 24. Through these events, those with physical and developmental disabilities are able to come off the sidelines and unite with their peers. The empowerment and self-confidence gained through the clinic will carry over from the field to the home, classroom, and the community, allowing them to realize that their disability will not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams. Each child is partnered with a volunteer to learn the essence of teamwork, have a mentor, and also bond over a sense of camaraderie.
