The Cleveland Browns lent their support to the Aug. 17 Youth Summit and Cleveland Metropolitan School District Back to School Fair at the Cleveland Public Auditorium.
Approximately 3,000 students, from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, and parents attended the summit to participate in life-enhancing workshops. The importance of conduct, courage, and character were the main focus during the summit, hosted by Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Cleveland Schools CEO Eric Gordon hosted.
The goal of the summit was to empower students with fundamental life skills. The Cleveland Metropolitan School District staff encouraged the students that if they have a dream, they should pursue it, and that anything is possible if they keep an open mind and believe in themselves.
Every student that attended the summit received a backpack with grade-appropriate school supplies. Hundreds of students visited the Browns' Play 60 table to be active and win a prize. After completing an exercise, students could win a variety of back-to-school prizes, such as pencils, rulers, and folders.
Play 60, the NFL’s movement for an active generation, is focused on increasing the wellness of young fans by encouraging them to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.
