NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – Three New York Giants players visited New Rochelle schools Tuesday to promote health and fitness, part of the National Football League's effort to fight childhood obesity.
The Giants and the American Heart Association partnered for the event.
Offensive lineman Selvish Capers said he wanted to make sure students knew how important staying active is.
“I’m just really excited to be here and promote NFL Play 60,” said Capers.
NFL players use the program and to get kids active as a way to reduce the incidence of obesity.
Capers and students jumped rope and did running drills and other exercises in the Albert Leonard Middle School gym. Players then spoke to Isaac Young Middle School students in their auditorium.
Giants defensive end Matt Broha said the experience was all about the students.
“It’s just having fun with the kids,” he said.
Broha, Capers and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn had lunch with New Rochelle firefighters, and made a stop at a local grocery store before leaving town.
Other Giants players visited other locations around the area including West Point, and schools around Piscataway, N.J.
