The Baltimore Ravens will host their first-ever Ravens TEAM Challenge at M&T Bank Stadium on Tuesday (10/16) as part of the 2012 NFL/United Way Hometown Huddle. Approximately 100 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.
Selected students from Baltimore's Dogwood Elementary School will participate in challenges such as kickball, handball, capture the flag and an on-field obstacle course. The Ravens TEAM Challenge integrates educational programming and the NFL's PLAY 60 physical activities while focusing on three values: fitness, sportsmanship and academics.
Ravens players, including CB Chykie Brown, WR Tandon Doss, WR Jacoby Jones, WR Torrey Smith and CB Cary Williams will join Ravens cheerleaders, official mascot Poe and close to 75 volunteers (from M&T Bank, United Way, Under Armour and the Lady Ravens Association) in facilitating the activities and leading youth participants.
An NFL initiative, the Hometown Huddle is a day of hands-on activity that will be celebrated by all 32 teams across the country in conjunction with the United Way.
