Bengals visit students to talk about good health


Cincinnati Bengals players Leon Hall, Thomas Howard, Michael Johnson, Nate Livings, Domata Peko and Andrew Whitworth visited St. Aloysius school on Tuesday, speaking about the importance of good health.

During the visit, the players also led kids in fitness activities, as part of NFL's PLAY 60 campaign, helping kids get 60 minutes of exercise a day.

On behalf of the NFL, the players presented the school with a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 grant for health and wellness programming or equipment.

The NFL PLAY 60 Super School sweepstakes selected one school in each of the 32 NFL markets and two non-NFL markets. In addition to the $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 grant, the NFL will donate all fitness equipment used during the Ultimate Physical Education Class for students to use in the future.
