Redskins’ Morgan Moses Laces Up for Student Success in Tonight’s Game
DC-Area Business Leader and Moses Supporter Todd Hitt Recognized on Custom Cleats
WASHINGTON, DC / NOVEMBER 30, 2017 — In tonight’s Thursday Night Football showdown against the Dallas Cowboys, Redskins Offensive Tackle Morgan Moses will be wearing his heart on his feet. As part of the National Football League’s “My Cause, My Cleats” week, Moses will be sporting custom footwear that features his own Morgan Moses Foundation and one of the organization’s top supporters from right here in the DC area, Todd Hitt’s Kiddar Capital.
“Education has been, and will remain a driving force in my life,” said Moses. “Through The Morgan Moses Foundation and our sponsor Kiddar Capital, we have reached close to 100 kids in my hometown of Richmond and Northern Virginia with our Homework Help tutoring program.”
Moses and Hitt, both former University of Virginia NCAA All-American athletes, have recently joined forces to provide free tutoring for at-risk, needs-based, or marginalized students in Loudoun and Fairfax Public Schools, as well as Richmond City and Chesterfield County Public Schools. This evening, their partnership will be immortalized as a wearable piece of art, which will be auctioned off following the game, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Morgan Moses Foundation.
“Like Morgan, I have always recognized the importance of education and how it can translate to success, both on the field and off,” said Hitt. “I’m proud to continue to work with The Morgan Moses Foundation to help young men and women from my hometown continue to strive for greatness.”
