PLAY 60 Ambassadors to Be Recognized on the Field
As the team celebrates its PLAY 60 game on Sunday, the Rams will welcome PLAY 60 ambassadors who have taken the pledge to live a healthy life. PLAY 60 is a league wide effort to fight childhood obesity by encouraging kids to be active for at least 60 minutes a day. The 12 PLAY 60 ambassadors will help the cheerleaders form the player tunnel during team introductions.

Many of the PLAY 60 ambassadors are also involved in the Fuel Up to PLAY 60 initiative or the NFL’s Play 60 Challenge. Fuel Up to Play 60, created in partnership with the National Dairy Council and the National Football League, empowers youth to take actions to improve nutrition and physical activity at their school and for their own health. The NFL Play 60 Challenge is a six-week fitness challenge implemented in partnership with the American Heart Association. The classroom-based program challenges youth to be active 60 minutes every day, 30 minutes at home and 30 minutes at school. Both programs help school children learn the importance of good nutrition and physical exercise. To get your school involved and join the movement, visit www.stlouisrams.com/Play60.

Area Youth to Participate in Punt, Pass & Kick Competition
In conjunction with the NFL’s PLAY 60 initiatives, the Rams will host a Punt, Pass & Kick competition prior to Sunday’s game. The top four scorers from all the first-place finalists in each age division from the St. Louis community will compete. The NFL Punt, Pass & Kick program is a national skills competition for boys and girls ages 6-15. With more than three million boys and girls from around the country taking part in the PPK competition every year from July through January, it is one of the world's largest youth sports participation programs. The winners of Sunday’s competition will advance to the national finals, which will be held at an NFL Playoff game in January.

Monsanto and Rams to Host America’s Farmers
Sunday’s game will commemorate the third consecutive year the Rams and team partner Monsanto will honor American farmers.  Rams alum Adam Timmerman, who grew up on a farm in Iowa and is still involved in farming today, will participate in the day’s festivities, which include a special pregame reception for 300 farmers and an in-game feature.

“This holiday season is the perfect time to give thanks to farmers who put food on our tables at Thanksgiving and all year long,” says Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Spokesperson, Jessica Simmons. “We are thrilled to recognize more than 300 of these hard-working farmers at a St. Louis Rams game. It’s just one small way to say ‘thank you’ for all that they do to grow our food, our economy and our quality of life.”
