Twenty-eight members of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders, along with Directors Donald Wells and Stephanie Jojokian, will travel to Hong Kong at the end of January to participate in the 2009 Chinese New Year Parade. The Redskins Cheerleaders will entertain millions during the more than 2-mile long parade route and live on TV.
This is the first time the First Ladies of Football have traveled to Hong Kong and it will be an amazing ending to a year of world traveling. Within 10 months the Redskins Cheerleaders have traveled to India, Aruba, Germany, the Netherlands, England and now China.
“Our Cheerleaders are extremely well known and popular in many places in the world. The popularity in India was especially amazing considering they didn’t even know about the NFL when we entered the country,” says Donald Wells.
“We are looking forward to having the same effect in China as we did in India and I know that our Cheerleaders will be a huge hit,” he adds.
Since 1999 the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders have traveled to more countries than any other professional sports entertainment group and have gone places where no other group has gone before. From bringing smiles to our military members in Iraq to cheering on the Cricket Players in India, the First Ladies of Football are true Ambassadors to the Redskins, the NFL and America.
