Led by professional athletes Grant Hill, Jennie Finch, Gary Player, Paul Pierce and a coalition of 40 professional athletes, both active and retired from 17 sports, have united to fight the childhood obesity epidemic in America. This core group has developed ‘nPLAY, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) foundation. The goal is to provide every child the opportunity to play and be active on a daily basis. This group of world class athletes has committed themselves on both a national and local level to work with and encourage administrators, teachers, students and parents to make schools a place where kids and be active, eat healthier and integrate wellness into the every day culture so our children can have the futures they deserve. Via an official partnership with the USDA on the HealthierUS Schools Challenge we raise money and put them directly back into schools to meet the criteria of this phenomenal program.
