–Bills players will visit Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School tomorrow to speak to students about the importance of good health. During the visit, they will lead kids in fitness activities as part of NFL’s PLAY 60 campaign, helping kids get 60 minutes of exercise a day. On behalf of the NFL, they will present the school with a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 grant for health and wellness programming or equipment and an additional $10,000 will go to the Cheektowaga-Sloan school district. To celebrate the start of the 2012 NFL season through the Back to Football campaign, schools were encouraged to participate in the NFL PLAY 60 Super School contest and submit three essays explaining how they planned to show their NFL team pride and incorporate football into their lesson plans. Schools were also asked to demonstrate their commitment to youth health and wellness by submitting essays on their school’s physical education environment and how they teach their students about the importance of being active and eating right.
