Jets PLAY 60 Super Kid to attend NFL PLAY 60 Youth Football Festival

NFL PLAY 60 named 34 Super Kids at the end of last season. These 34 ambassadors are helping to spread the PLAY 60 message by inspiring kids in their communities to be active for at least 60 minutes a day. Before tomorrow's event, we checked in with Aidan, the Jets PLAY 60 Super Kid:



"I am excited to be the NFL Super Kid for the JETS. I love the JETS and love playing football with my dad. I think it will be fun to teach kids about sports and how good it is to stay active, no matter what."


"I think it will be fun to go to the Football Festival and play football with other kids. I am super excited to go to NYC and run around with everyone while having fun."


"I have a disease called CF that affects my lungs. I always knew exercise was important but now my doctors say that exercise and being active are two of the most important things for me to do to beat CF. So I do everything I can to stay active. I ride my bike and scooter, I swim, play soccer and basketball. I also run around and play tag with my friends. Being active will help me live a longer life and I want to tell kids how important it is for them too, even if they don't have CF."




Check back later this week for photos, videos and other articles on the PLAY 60 Youth Football Festival.
