Washington Redskins linebacker Darryl Tapp will pay a visit to Kenilworth Elementary School in Bowie Tuesday to help the school kick off an obesity education and awareness program.
The program, Fuel Up to Play 60, is a collaborative effort, founded by the NFL, the National Dairy Council and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It encourages children to make small changes in their own lives and at their schools that encourage sustainable, life-long healthy habits.
According to its website, "Fuel Up to Play 60 gives leaders in health, business, government and communities nationwide the opportunity to be a part of a movement that can reverse the trend of increasing weight and sedentary lifestyles among America’s youth."
At Kenilworth Elementary on Tuesday, Tapp will "get students moving by running drills, sharing tips to get active and showing off his own dance moves," according to a press release.
