Keep Gym in School Grant
Now in its fifth year, NFL Network's Keep Gym in School program continues its mission to boost fitness and physical education across the country, as latest studies show youth facing alarming rates of obesity and related diseases. In 2012-2013, NFL Network is teaming up with NFL Play 60 and the Super Schools program to offer $10,000 grants to schools in 32 team markets and 2 national markets that show their commitment to health and wellness.
NFL Network will make the Super Schools even more super this year! Together with our distribution partners, we will award an additional $10,000 grant to one school in each Super School district. Keep Gym in School grant winners will be announced at the NFL Draft in April 2013.
