Bucs Gift Bing New Equipment for Play 60 Win

May 09, 2017

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in collaboration with the National Football League (NFL) and the American Heart Association, kicked-off the Play 60 Challenge in all elementary schools in Hillsborough County earlier this year. The goal of this initiative was to promote the importance of healthy eating and active lifestyle.

The Play60 Challenge took place for 4-weeks, encouraging Physical Education (PE) teachers to track their students’ activity outside the classroom. The top three schools with the highest average minutes played in January received grants to purchase new equipment for their PE department:

1st Place: Bing Elementary
2nd Place: Bevis Elementary
3rd Place: Lithia Springs Elementary

HCPS students played more than 7.1 million minutes during this challenge! Thank you to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the National Football League and the American Heart Association for providing this opportunity to our students.
