NASHVILLE, Tenn. - This week wraps up another great school year for the Tennessee Titans Play 60 program!
Our crazy, playful, and mischievous mascot T-Rac visited 33 schools and educated nearly 18,000 students this school year on the importance of working hard in school, eating healthy, and getting at least 60 minutes of exercise every single day.
NFL Play 60 is the National Football League's campaign to encourage kids to be physically active for at least 60 minutes a day in order to help reverse the trend of childhood obesity.
The Tennessee Titans have partnered with Tennessee State Parks, the Southeast United Dairy Industry Association, and the American Heart Association to support this movement by educating elementary and middle school students all over middle Tennessee about proper nutrition and all the ways they can exercise.
T-Rac and his team coach students on how to put down the cell phones, video games, and computers so they can get up and move!
Titans Radio producer and Play 60 emcee, Rhett Bryan, interviews players about their favorite activities and how they stay so healthy and fit. The program also includes videos of T-Rac and Tennessee State Parks' mascot Ramble hiking, repelling, biking, canoeing, and having fun playing outside.
The partnership with Tennessee State Parks is a first of its kind and has given the Titans the opportunity to promote the NFL's Play 60 campaign while encouraging youth to get out and enjoy Tennessee's 56 gorgeous state parks.
The Tennessee Titans, T-Rac and his friends have visited over 260 schools and reached more than 150,000 students since the program's inception in 2012.
