Although it was a rainy afternoon in Cleveland, the Browns brought excitement to Stepstone Academy, a charter school in Cleveland, for a day of Play 60 for students.
Over 70 first and second grade students learned about the importance of getting 60 minutes of activity a day through the Browns Play 60 program and celebrated the fun ways they can incorporate exercise into their day. Browns players including TE MarQueis Gray, Longsnapper Christian Yount, Linebacker Craig Robertson and the all-time crowd pleaser, Chomps, welcomed students and talked about the importance of getting active.
Yount asked students what they liked to eat for healthy breakfast with the message of fueling up your body is essential to start your day and give you energy for exercise. Student had their chance to show their favorite dance moves, just another way to get up and get moving.
Play 60 stations throughout the school were the highlight for students as they got to hula hoop with Jabaal Sheard, jump rope with Craig Robertson and run through agility ladders with Julian Posey. Other stations included festive Play 60 step overs pads, a zig zag course and even a football toss.
Students ended the visit grinning ear to ear and chanting "Here we go Brownies!" as they were the real super stars of the day through Play 60. Players left with the message to join the Browns Play 60 movement and encourage their siblings, parents and friends to get active for healthier lifestyles.
