A representative of the Atlanta Falcons will be on hand to take the NFL’s PLAY 60 program to two Colquitt County elementary schools on Tuesday, March 25.
The NFL PLAY 60 campaign is designed to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active through in-school, after-school and team-based programs, online child-targeted outreach on NFLRUSH.com, and many partnerships with like-minded organizations.
The program will be presented from 9-10:30 a.m. on March 25, at Odom Elementary School.
The program will be presented at Stringfellow Elementary School from 1-2:15 p.m. that day.
Chris Millman, the Atlanta Falcons Community Relations and Youth Programs Manager, will be on hand.
The Pop Warner Football South Georgia Hawgs have been instrumental in bringing the Falcons and the PLAY 60 program to Colquitt County.
Also helping with the program will be former Colquitt County High, Valdosta State University, Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons player Antonio Edwards.
In addition to helping out with the PLAY 60 programs, Edwards has agreed to help coach the South Georgia Hawgs Junior Pee Wee team next season, said South Georgia Hawgs coach George Wallace.
