Siler City, NC - The Carolina Play 60 movement came to Virginia Cross Elementary on Wednesday, October 2. Play 60 is a movement by the National Football League to support healthy living and physical activity of at least 60 minutes per day. There were about 170 students that opted to participate in the event.

Students were split in groups and rotated through stations that were set up with various activities. Football players from Jordan-Matthews were there to assist in demonstrating how to complete the activities at each station. Some of the activities were: obstacle courses, passing and catching a football, tackling, and stretching exercises.

“The goal of the event is to give our students a fun experience that also will hopefully develop some healthy habits at the same time,” stated Christopher Bowling, Assistant Principal at Virginia Cross Elementary.
