On Tuesday (11/10), Baltimore Ravens TE Todd Heap will be among 34 players participating in "NFL Take a Player to School" presented by the JCPenney Afterschool Fund. Heap will pick up fifth-grade student Travis Justice in a limo from his house, take him to school at Elkridge Elementary School (Elkridge, MD), visit the principal's office, and speak to students about the importance of good health. During the visit, Heap will lead kids in fitness activities, as part of NFL's PLAY 60 campaign, helping youth get 60 minutes of exercise a day.
The "NFL Take a Player to School" sweepstakes selected one winner in each of the 32 NFL markets and two non-NFL markets. As the Baltimore-area winning student, Justice had the opportunity to work with Heap to plan an NFL Ultimate P.E. Class *for his school. The NFL and JCPenney made a donation to each winning school to support their in-school and afterschool physical fitness programs. Additionally, the NFL donated all fitness equipment that will be used during the *Ultimate P.E. Class for future use. Each school also will receive an equipment donation from Wilson, the official football of the NFL.
