NFL Play 60 Challenge wraps up with celebration events

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Chargers, the American Heart Association and the Santee School District are wrapping up this year's NFL Play 60 Challenge.

Junior Chargers training camp celebrations were held Wednesday and will continue Thursday to mark the end of the program.

The NFL Play 60 Challenge educates youth about the importance of staying fit and creates a fun environment at school to inspire students to be physically active for at least 60 minutes every day.

"Nowadays kids have to really think about unplugging, getting outside and being physically active. Things that we just took for granted when we were kids," said Kimberly Layton the Director of Community Relations for the San Diego Chargers.

More than 2,700 students participated in the program.
