ts, to promote regular physical activity for the health of all of America's children. As a President's Challenge Advocate, Keep Gym in School will incorporate the free motivational tracker into its initiative to encourage Americans, of all ages and abilities, to make activity a part of their everyday lives. NFL Network is creating a customizable "Keep Gym in School Challenge." With this program individuals can log on to the website, engage in activities, and track progress to earn special Presidential awards recognizing their accomplishments.

Keep Gym in School, in conjunction with the NFL's Play 60 initiative, is designed to address recent facts released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Over the past two decades, the rates for overweight children have doubled and today over 12.5 million children and adolescents 2-19 years of age in the United States are overweight. According to the for Disease Control, only 7.9 percent of middle schools provide daily physical education or its equivalent (225 minutes per week) for the entire school year (36 weeks) for students in all grades in the school.

Additional Partners:

Donations have been made to the initiative by Wilson, who will be providing footballs to each of the schools and Gatorade, who will supply hydration stations at the "minicamps."
