The NFL has a long-standing commitment to promoting health and wellness for young fans through NFL PLAY 60. Unfortunately children with mobility-related conditions are likely to be less active than their peers, which can lead to lack of strength, obesity and other health issues.
To ensure all kids have an equal opportunity to play, the NFL has teamed up with Shriners Hospitals for Children, a recognized leader in caring for children with orthopaedic conditions and spinal cord injuries, by providing an NFL PLAY 60 All-Ability Guide. The NFL PLAY 60 All-Ability Guide includes adaptive activities and tips so children with mobility challenges will have the opportunity to participate and pursue a healthy lifestyle.
For more than 90 years, the staff of Shriners Hospitals for Children has been improving the lives of children, helping them overcome significant challenges and have the confidence to pursue their dreams. The NFL and Shriners Hospitals for Children are committed to giving children with mobility challenges the ability, self -confidence and opportunity to get active for 60 minutes a day.
