11 Wisconsin schools readying for Packers' 'Play 60 Challenge'

Posted Jan 30, 2013

More than 1,900 students to participate Feb. 4 through March 3

The “Play 60 Challenge,” a physical fitness program from the Green Bay Packers, American Heart Association, Bellin Health and WPS Health Insurance, gets under way Feb. 4 at 11 schools in Wisconsin.

More than 1,900 students in grades four through eight are using this week to prepare for the event, a 28-day program that challenges them to get active and play for at least 60 minutes each day, with the activities able to be broken up and performed either in or out of school.

The students will track their daily totals on classroom scoreboards, and at the end of the program, the school with the highest cumulative participation time per student will receive a trip to Lambeau Field, including a stadium tour, Packers Hall of Fame passes, a chance to meet a Packers player and a $700 gift certificate from U.S. Games. The schools that place second, third, and fourth will receive U.S. Games gift certificates of $600, $500, and $400, respectively, which can be redeemed for gym equipment.

“The healthy habits that these students learn and develop as a part of this program will benefit to them throughout their lives,” said Tim Schroeder, Packers youth football coordinator. “Play 60 offers a fun way for students to compete with their peers at other schools and see the progress that they are making as a team. We look forward to watching their efforts over the next four weeks.”

Participating schools received teacher guides and student planners, as well as a Play 60 Challenge drawstring backpack.

The Wisconsin schools participating are Black Creek Elementary/Middle School, Black Creek; Denmark Elementary, Denmark; Fox View Intermediate, De Pere; Good Shepherd Lutheran School, West Bend; Greenfield Bilingual School, Milwaukee; Holy Family School, Brillion; Maple Dale Middle School, River Hills; Rock Ledge Middle School, Seymour; Seymour Middle School, Seymour; Spooner Middle School, Spooner; and St. Mary Catholic, Portage.

More information on the “Play 60 Challenge” can be found online at http://www.packers.com. The students’ totals will be updated regularly as well.

The program supports the NFL’s Play 60 program, a youth health and fitness campaign focused on making the next generation of kids the most active and healthy by encouraging them to be active for at least 60 minutes a day. More than 200 Wisconsin schools have participated in Play 60 programs since 2007.
