The Tennessee Titans football players are no strangers to exercise and well-being. Now they are spreading the word and some money to a local elementary school.

The Titans organization along with the NFL and Comcast presented Lipscomb Elementary School with a $10,000 grant to be used towards promoting fitness.

It is all part of the NFL PLAY 60 campaign which encourages children to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day to fight childhood obesity. The contest selected one school in each of the 32 NFL markets and two non-NFL markets after submitting three essays demonstrating their commitment to health and wellness and their lesson plans to incorporate football on a daily basis and Lipscomb Elementary prevailed here in Tennessee.

Titans players along with Titans Cheerleaders and T-Rac not only spoke to the students about the importance of staying active but they also lead them in fitness activities.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brett Kern, Jason McCourty, Coty Sensabaugh, Delanie Walker, Nate Washington, George Wilson, and Kamerion Wimbley were on hand to help present the award along with the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders, Titans Mascot T-Rac, Comcast, and the Director of Government Affairs and Public Relations, Sara Jo Houghland.

In addition to the grant, the NFL is donating all the fitness equipment that was used during Tuesday's fitness activities to the school as well.
