NFL Player Ambassadors
The National Football League brings NFL excitement to school wellness! All 32 NFL teams are involved with the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, and since the program’s inception, over 1,300 player visits have taken place at schools involved in the program. Our Midwest Fuel Up to Play 60 Player Ambassadors step up each season by working with our schools and students and getting them to see the importance of eating healthy and staying active for 60 minutes every day.
