Play 60 Tuesdays
Get your whole body in the game! The Seahawks, through the Play 60 Tuesday program, are challenging kids to combat childhood obesity with 60 minutes of active play every day.
As part of the program, King County elementary school students have a chance to hear firsthand how Seahawks players follow Play 60 Tuesday principles on and off the field, as well as participate in activities alongside them!
The Play 60 Tuesdays program is only able to accommodate requests for elementary schools within King County. All requests are subject to review and will be finalized by school administrators.
The Play 60 Tuesday program will not visit one school twice within the same calendar year.

Play 60 Challenge
The Play60 Challenge is a free program provided through the NFL in partnership with The American Heart Association. This program is currently open to all elementary and middle schools in Washington State.
The Seattle Seahawks provide instructions, resources and prize packs to participating schools. Schools with the highest percentage of students completing the challenge are also eligible to receive a fitness equipment grant.
Fuel to Play 60
Fuel Up to Play 60 is a program founded by the National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with USDA, that empowers students to take charge in making small, everyday changes at school.
Students can win cool prizes, like an NFL player visit or Super Bowl tickets, for choosing good-for-you foods and getting active for at least 60 minutes every day. We want kids to make a difference not only in their lives, but also their community.

Pediatrics Tips from Virginia Mason
Nutrition & Fitness for Live
Virginia Mason's Nutrition and Fitness for Life (N.F.L.) program teaches children and their families healthier lifestyle habits, such as how to choose foods wisely and get and stay active. The program is free to qualifying Virginia Mason patients ages five through 18 and is funded as the sole beneficiary of the Seattle Seahawks Rumble at the Ridge Golf Tournament, part of the Boeing Classic Champions Tour.
Families who join N.F.L. learn to work together as a team, find fun ways to exercise, prepare meals at home and reduce time spent watching TV and playing video games. Within the program, parents share ideas with each other, and kids who struggle with weight issues learn they are not alone. Once families have graduated from the program, they are offered additional support from Virginia Mason providers.
