Titans, Tennessee State Parks Join In NFL Play60

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans and Tennessee State Parks are meeting with Governor Bill Haslam at LP Field Friday afternoon, in recognition of the NFL Play60 challenge.

NFL Play60 is the National Football League's campaign to encourage kids to be active for 60 minutes a day in order to help reverse the trend of childhood obesity.

This spring, Tennessee State Parks and the Tennessee Titans have partnered in a number of unique ways as part of an NFL Play60.

"The NFL Play60 campaign promotes healthy living with an encouraging message," Gov. Haslam said in a statement. "We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated NFL franchise in the state, and I appreciate the Titans' ongoing commitment to our children and to our communities."

Some of the events from the Play60 project includes 30 school visits planned throughout the state, pairing T-Rac, the Tennessee Titans award-winning mascot, with Ramble the Raccoon, Tennessee State Parks' own beloved mascot.

Tennessee is the first state park system to participate in the NFL Play60 campaign.
