Packers participate in Play 60 challenge

The Green Bay Packers are using their skills on the field, and out in the community, to tackle childhood obesity.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - The Green Bay Packers are using their skills on the field, and out in the community, to tackle childhood obesity.

Today, A.J. Hawk, James Jones, Ryan Pickett, Morgan Burnett, and Brad Jones paid a visit to Christa McAuliffe Elementary School. That school was selected as one of 34 NFL Play 60 Super Schools. The purpose of the visit was to speak to students about the importance of eating healthy, and getting lots of exercise.

"We're just trying to get kids to be active," says Packers Linebacker Brad Jones. "I think when kids are more active, they have more energy, they're healthier. It's better for everybody. I think Play 60 really gets that message across."

The school was also awarded a $10,000 grant from the NFL to enhance fitness programs, or to upgrade gym equipment.
