Based on fan votes, NFL PLAY 60 will fully fund the winning project, while the other project will get 50% funding towards its goal. Vote now!



Jump it Up!
City:  Washington D.C.
School:  Walker-jones Education Campus
Teacher:  Mrs. Hawkins

My students need:

My students, having just seen the movie, “Jump In”, want to revive the double dutch sport in our school. We would like sixteen, competition grade, jump ropes to start a team at our school! Jump rope training enhances your coordination, agility, quickness, footwork, endurance, and it is fun.


Learning Fitness Through Pedometers
City: Golden Valley, MN
School Noble Elementary
Teacher Ms. Ellis

My students need:

I teach in a school with limited resources for physical education due to the cost of equipment. I am requesting a 3-function pedometer for my students that will help them see how moderate to vigorous physical activity is different than steps and activity movement. This will give them a better understanding of fitness and help them set goals.
