Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, May 17 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Healthy Living With Tre Flowers
The students of both Canyon Elementary School and Harold B. Lee Elementary School were in for a treat (no pun intended) when Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers came to visit. Flowers teamed up with Dairy West and the National Football League to visit both of the elementary schools located in Utah and Idaho to speak to students about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
The Seahawks cornerback first visited Canyon in Spanish Fork, Utah on May 8 and spoke to the school’s 550 students about the value of healthy eating and getting physical exercise every day.
On May 16, he made his way to Harold B. Lee in Dayton, Idaho, giving a similar presentation in addition to conducting a Q&A session and officiating a student relay race.
The two schools were awarded the visit as a result of their outstanding participation in the national Fuel Up to Play 60 program. The program was founded by the National Dairy Council and the Nation Football League in collaboration with the USDA.
Dairy West awarded multiple grants to schools across the region to help them sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity improvements. Hundreds of schools across the nation applied for the funding and Canyon and Harold B. Lee were two of the schools to be selected.
Flowers has become the ‘go-to-guy’ for Fuel Up to Play 60 visits, as he visited a local high school in Seatac, Washington back in February. He mentioned at the Idaho elementary school that he never had anything like this growing up and he wants to give to the people who support him.
