BUCCANEERS AND DAIRY COUNCIL OF FLORIDA TO PRESENT $5,000 HEALTH AND WELLNESS GRANT TO PINELLAS PARK MIDDLE SCHOOLWhat:
On Tuesday, November 18 at 11:00 a.m., the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dairy Council of Florida will make a special visit to Pinellas Park Middle School for winning the 2014 Fuel Up to PLAY 60 “Defend Your Turf Challenge.” During the visit, wide receiver Mike Evans, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and the Buccaneers Rookie Club, along with Buccaneers Cheerleaders and mascot Captain Fear, will congratulate the students for their efforts to promote physical activity and nutrition, and, along with representatives from the Dairy Council of Florida, present the school with a $5,000 Health and Wellness Grant.
The 2014 Fuel Up to PLAY 60 “Defend Your Turf Challenge” was available to Elementary and Middle School students throughout Pinellas County, where schools were encouraged to enroll and accrue points by participating in activities that showcase living a healthy, nutritious and active lifestyle. Pinellas Park Middle School earned the most overall points in the nine-week challenge, which ran from September 8 – November 7, and also earned the title of top “Turf Defender” for each week of the challenge. More than 30 Pinellas County schools participated in the challenge, and the schools with the top 20 point totals will also receive a $250 donation toward their health and wellness programming.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is an initiative between the National Football League and the National Dairy Council that empowers students to create and implement activities that reward them for making healthy choices, and inspire change in their school. Students participate in fun challenges, track their own healthy eating and physical activity, and earn fun rewards. Visit http://fueluptoplay60.floridamilk.com for more information.
