Designed to tackle childhood obesity through 60 minutes of daily physical activity, NFL PLAY 60 brings together the NFL’s long-standing commitment to health and fitness with partner organizations like United Way. PLAY 60 is also implemented locally, as part of the NFL’s in-school, after-school and team-based programs.

To celebrate NFL/United Way Hometown Huddle, the Carolina Panthers will award PLAY 60 grants to local schools or youth service organizations across North Carolina and South Carolina. All grant funding will be designated to support youth health and wellness programming, which may include:

  • Playground or gymnasium refurbishments
  • Purchase of physical education or athletic equipment
  • Interactive fitness technology installations
