NASHVILLE, Tenn. – This past weekend the Tennessee Titans took part in the fifth annual 104.5-FM Sports Fest. There were numerous games and vendors readily available to attract adults but the Titans appealed a younger crowd with an NFL Play 60 obstacle course.

The Titans welcomed hundreds of kids and a few fun-loving adults from all across Middle Tennessee, as they were able to run, jump and weave through the course displaying their athletic abilities and having great fun.
Youth from all ages took part in the obstacle course and left with the understanding they must receive 60 minutes of play per day to stay healthy. Some participants had so much fun they repeated the course multiple times!
Once they finished the obstacle course, each participant received NFL Play 60 prizes. Some participants even received bigger prizes, such as a Play 60 football, jersey, T-shirt and gloves!
As a whole, it was great fun for the whole family and the Titans were able to spread the message that everyone should participate in 60 minutes of activity a day.
