Ravens Team Challenge At M&T Bank Stadium

Posted Oct 10, 2013

The Baltimore Ravens will host their second annual Ravens TEAM Challenge at M&T Bank Stadium on Tuesday (10/15) as part of the 2013 NFL/United Way Hometown Huddle. Approximately 120 local youth will test their physical endurance and ability to work as a team in order to complete various activities. At the end of the event, one group will be declared TEAM Challenge champions, based upon total points accumulated.

Under the guidance of Playworks Baltimore, selected students from Curtis Bay (Baltimore) Elementary School will participate in challenges such as kickball, dodgeball, ultimate football and a series of relays. In addition, each student will receive a new pair of sneakers, provided by Under Armour.

Playworks currently delivers safe and inclusive play to 20 Baltimore City Schools daily, with a goal to create a place for every kid on the playground — a place where every kid belongs, contributes and is part of the game. Through its involvement in Hometown Huddle, volunteers will encourage children to bring out the best in themselves and each other, and kids will learn the value of fair play, compassion and respect.

Ravens players, including CB Chykie Brown, LB Josh Bynes, LS Morgan Cox, DE Art Jones, RB Bernard Pierce, WR Torrey Smith, K Justin Tucker and QB Tyrod Taylor will join Ravens cheerleaders, official mascot Poe and close to 75 volunteers (from the Lady Ravens Association, M&T Bank, Southwest Airlines, Under Armour and United Way) in facilitating the activities and leading youth participants.

An NFL initiative, the Hometown Huddle is a day of hands-on activity that is celebrated by all 32 teams across the country in conjunction with the United Way. The Ravens TEAM Challenge integrates educational programming and the NFL’s PLAY 60 physical activities while focusing on three values: fitness, sportsmanship and academics.
