Play 60 Challenge

Green Bay Packers

Four Wisconsin schools participated in this season’s Play 60 Challenge, a program that inspires students to be active for at least 60 minutes per day. Of the 1,732 middle school students who participated, nearly 4.7 million active minutes were logged in a 28-day span, averaging 96 minutes per student, per day. Edison Middle School in Green Bay proved victorious
in the challenge with a daily average of 112 minutes per student.


Ful Up To Play 60 Super School Visit

Green Bay Packers players Sam Barrington, Morgan Burnett, Datone Jones and Corey Linsley visited with 700 students from 12 area elementary schools at Appleton West High School, in celebration of being selected as the recipients of a $12,500 fitness grant. The players spoke to students about the importance of healthy eating and led kids in fitness activities to help fulfill their required 60 minutes of daily exercise.

Scholarships

The Green Bay Packers Foundation has partnered with Scholarships, Inc. and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College to fund scholarships for students who are residents of Brown County and are entering four-year colleges or two-year technical or apprenticeship trade programs. Each entity is awarded $7,500 annually through this scholarship program. Established in 2002, it is funded in part by the royalty fees paid for the use of the Packers logo on Wisconsin automobile license plates. Because royalties do not fully cover the scholarships, the Green Bay Packers fund the remainder of the amount, a figure which totals $101,000 since 2006.
