QB Drew Brees traveled to Magnolia Trace Elementary in Mandeville, La. Thursday morning. He visited with school administrators in the Principal's office, spoke to students about the importance of good health and led the kids in fitness activities as part of NFL's PLAY 60 campaign, helping youth get 60 minutes of exercise a day.
On behalf of the NFL, Brees presented the school with a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 grant for health and wellness programming or equipment.
" The 'Play 60' campaign is always something I have been passionate about," said Brees. "It was fun to come out here and get some exercise with a great group of kids."
In August, the NFL selected Fannie C. Williams Elementary School in New Orleans, LA as its inaugural "PLAY 60 Super School" as part of its Kickoff celebration. Head Coach Sean Payton and DB Tracy Porter, as well as Saints alumni players Mike McKenzie and Michael Lewis visited Fannie C. Williams on August 31 and presented a $10,000 check for new recreation equipment.
