McNabb to host Kids Clinic in South Jersey

Despite the change of scenary and uniform, former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb will continue to hold his Kids Football Clinic in the Philadelphia area when he hosts the June 12 affair in Marlton, N.J. at the Memorial Sports Complex.

McNabb, traded to the Redskins earlier this month, had previously held his clinic at the NovaCare Complex, the Eagles practice facility. But for obvious reasons, the event -- run in conjuction with Virtua Hospital -- has changed locations.

“I’m excited to continue the Kid’s Clinic in this region,” McNabb said in a statement. “We’ve been able to provide a fun, energetic, atmosphere for many kids over the years. That won’t change just because my uniform has. In fact, with the cooperation we have received from Virtua, Evesham Township and some of the local schools, this year’s clinic promises to be the best one yet.”

The non-contact football clinic is open to boys and girls ages 11-16 and is run by McNabb and other NFL players and coaches. In the past, Eagles coach Andy Reid and assortment of McNabb's teammates with the Eagles have pitched in. According to McNabb's publicist, Rich Burg, the clinic will feature some of McNabb's former teammates with the Eagles and some current ones from Washington.

The clinic will also feature some of South Jersey’s top high school and community program coaches.

“When presented with the opportunity to help Donovan and Virtua, we jumped at the chance,” Evesham Township Mayor Randy Brown said in a statement. “Our community has taken pride in restoring this facility and what better way to showcase it than this exciting clinic.”

There will be a post-clinic awards party and dinner. Net proceeds will benefit the Donovan McNabb Fund in partnership with Virtua and help fund The McNabb Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the new Virtua Voorhees Hospital, scheduled to open in Spring 2011.
