In Septemeber Green Park Elementary had an event for their students encouraging physical activity. The event took place the day of the first Saints game of the 2011 season in conjunction with the Back to Football Friday Contest. September's event was a huge success, winning the school a $10,000 check from NFL Play 60. New Orleans Saints players, Malcom Jenkins #27, Leigh Torrence #24,Tracy Porter #22, Jerom Bushrod #74 and Thomas Morstead #6 surprised the students with the check. The players talked to the kids about eating healthy while encouraging them to play for at least 60 minutes a day as a way to exercise. Following the presentation the Saints players joined the students on the playground leading different activities including jumping rope, hula hoping, relay races,and weight lifting and even led the students in cool down stretches after.
