Washington Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and teammates are gearing up for Alexander’s second annual Ride to Provide, which will take place April 23 on the W&OD Trail.

Ride to Provide is a charity bike event that Alexander started last year to help raise funds for his ACES Foundation, which benefits orphans, poverty-stricken women and children in Africa. Proceeds also will benefit local underprivileged youth and disaster relief efforts in Japan.

Beginning at the Reston Town Center, Alexander, teammates Kedric Golston, Anthony Armstrong and Rocky McIntosh, as well as former teammates, Antwaan Randle El and Derrick Dockery, media personalities and hundreds of children and adults will take part in a 10-, 20- and 35-mile rides.

Participants also may take part in a post-ride celebration at the Reston Town Center and enjoy music, food, raffles and autographed memorabilia sales.
