*WHAT: *On Tuesday, September 10, Colts DE Cory Redding will visit Indianapolis Lighthouse Charter School to launch his season-long pledge program with nearly 200 students. Through this program, Redding is asking each middle school student at Lighthouse to make a pledge to attend class, respect others, have a good attitude and work hard at their grades. In return for their hard work, Redding will reward students with Colts tickets and a pizza party at the end of the semester.
Tuesday's visit will take place from 10 – 11 a.m. in the school's gymnasium. The pledge program was started by Redding during his tenure with the Baltimore Ravens and continues for a second year in partnership with an Indianapolis school. Cory has purchased a block of 15 tickets for every Colts home game and will use those tickets to reward students who abide by the pledge. In addition, Cory will take a few moments before each game to meet with the students in attendance and congratulate them on their efforts.
This program is a part of Cory's ongoing support of the community through the Cory Redding Foundation, which was created to support quality educational, recreational and community assistance programs that promote the development of at-risk populations.
