NFL PLAY 60 Challenge is a classroom-based program that inspires kids to get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day in school and at home. The St. Louis Rams and the American Heart Association have teamed up yet again to create a fun and engaging six week program designed to educate and motivate students to get up and move before, during and after the school day for at least 60 minutes every day. The NFL Play 60 Challenge is an opportunity for local schools to compete for who can record the most fitness minutes in school and at home over the course of six weeks. Learn how to get students moving for 60 minutes every day here.

The American Heart Association and the St. Louis Rams are excited to announce the kick off to the Play 60 Challenge 4th Quarter Drive! This engaging initiative will take place over the course of the next six weeks starting on February 2 and ending on March 15. We would like to thank the schools listed in the matrix below for their ongoing support and involvement in the Play 60 Challenge, and are excited to help bring a positive change to your schools’ communities! All participating schools in the 4th Quarter Drive will be invited to an exclusive Rams Play 60 field day at the Rams training facility, and the school with the highest total average of minutes per student will win a St. Louis Rams player appearance.  Remember to visit this website for weekly updates on your school’s progress and to see how they are matching up with the competition.
