KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Some lucky students got to skip school Thursday for football.
About 170 children spent their day at Arrowhead Stadium doing some pretty tough drills. The students came from elementary and middle schools across Missouri and Kansas. They got to play because they have some big jobs at their schools.
“They participate in what’s akin to student council, encouraging all the rest of the student body to get healthy, get active and make a difference,” Bridget Sheehan with the Midwest Dairy Council said.
The training camp is part of the NFL’s “Fuel Up to Play 60” program, an initiative encouraging them to eat healthy and exercise for an hour a day.
