GREENSBORO, N.C. - Greensboro Parks & Recreation campers tested out their football skills Friday morning at Jaycee Park.

About 400 kids showed up to participate in the Carolina Panthers' Play 60 Camp.

The NFL launched the national youth health and fitness campaign back in 2007.

The purpose is to increase the wellness of young fans by encouraging them to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.

During the event, campers got the chance to run, catch, and play using Carolina Panthers' equipment.

"This is jus t a good opportunity for our campers to come out, hang with the Carolina Panthers , and enjoy at least 60 minutes of activity," said Britt Huggins, Youth Development Director with Greensboro Parks & Recreation.

Since the launch of the program, the NFL has committed more than $350 million to youth health and fitness through programming, grants, and media time for PSAs nationwide.

The NFL plans on continuing the PLAY 60 movement for an active and healthier generation for years to come.
