According to the American Heart Association, Physical Education not only gives children an opportunity to be active but it teaches them the skills they need to be active throughout their lifetime.

The NFL and the American Heart Association have teamed up to create the NFL PLAY 60 Challenge, a program that inspires kids to get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day in school and at home. It also helps schools become places that encourage physically active lifestyles year-round. Get students and staff excited, engaged and active! Register for the NFL PLAY 60 Challenge today and start downloading the resources you need to get your school moving.
