RG3 raises money for cancer research
Robert Griffin III says his surgically repaired knee is on the mend and that “each day is a better day” in a brief interview session with reporters Wednesday.
“I'm doing great. The knee feels fine,” the Redskins star quarterback told reporters at an American Cancer Society luncheon to honor Tanya Synder, wife of team owner Dan Snyder. “It’s about taking it slow, and each day is a better day because the knee feels better and you do more things.”
He added: "It's just a process that I'm going through."
After the event, 18 guests donated $1,000 apiece to pose for a photo with Griffin and then have the quarterback autograph the picture. One man paid $15,000 for a pair of RG3’s pink cleats, which Griffin then signed. Proceeds from the auction also went to the American Cancer Society.
“You don’t think that a pair of cleats can make that kind of difference,” Griffin told reporters. “But I guess they were highly sought after.”
Just like everything Griffin touches these days.
