This year marked the third year of the Honor Good Deeds event which was started by 15 year old, Justin Bachman of Solon, Ohio. The Browns were on site during the fair to spread the positive message of staying active and Play 60. Kids and families were encouraged to spin the Play 60 prize wheel which featured various exercises for all to engage in.
Additionally, the Browns Backers’ Junior Backers provided information on new memberships. Guests also had the opportunity to showcase their football throwing skills at the Browns’ very own football toss inflatable.
Robertson helped with the football toss station and Play 60 prize wheel during the event.
“It is important for kids to stay active because it is healthy,” Robertson said. “I was always active as a kid and now, it is an important part of my lifestyle. Because of that, it becomes a point for you to encourage others and even your kids to stay active later in life”.
Robertson was inspired by Justin’s story, and was impressed by the fact that such a young man is making the difference in others’ lives.
“(Justin) has turned what he has into a gift and continues to be passionate about spreading his positive message and helping others” said Robertson.
Guests who visited the Browns booth received prizes for participating in the activities and received information on upcoming Play 60 opportunities including:

Join the Play 60 Challenge – Coming this spring!
The Browns will again offer the Play 60 Challenge to local schools this spring. Through a partnership with the American Heart Association, the six-week program provides easy ways to get your school more active and healthy throughout the school day. The Play 60 Challenge is designed to motivate seventh and eighth-grade students to become physically active for 60 minutes each day. Over the course of the challenge, students log their minutes of physical activity daily.
At the conclusion of the challenge, top schools, teachers and performers are rewarded with a range of Browns prizes. The Browns’ local Play 60 programming is in association with Medical Mutual, Cleveland Clinic and the American Dairy Association Mideast and Fuel Up to Play 60.
