About

The American Heart Association and the National Football League, working together with Discovery Education, have joined forces to amplify the NFL PLAY 60 Challenge’s reach and impact by inspiring physically active lifestyles in schools and homes nationwide. With a custom set of lessons, videos and interactive activities, students nationwide will have the tools they need to get the necessary 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day.

The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world. We team with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases. The Dallas-based association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.
