Students at Olympia Brown Elementary School last week learned how important exercise is to living a healthy life when members of the Green Bay Packers visited the school as part of the NFL’s Play 60 initiative.

Play 60/Fuel Up to Play is a program aimed at teaching kids how to eat healthier and to get outside and play for at least 60 minutes a day to combat childhood obesity.

The students of Olympia Brown was chosen to participate, and last Wednesday, players and coaches from the Green Bay Packers visited the school to put students through drills to get them excited about physical activity.

Members of the William Horlick High School football team also joined in the fun.
