The National Football League, a longtime element of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, joined forces with the student leaders of participating schools to host the Student Ambassador Summit in Washington D.C. from July 11-14. The summit, which focused on tackling the nation’s childhood obesity issue, featured six of the Southeast United Dairy Industry Associations Fuel Up to Play 60’s leaders, as well as a number of current and former NFL players.
A’Myah Ross (Rock Hill, South Carolina), Elizabeth Ann Winebarger (Elizabethtown, Kentucky), Jack Grove (Greensboro, North Carolina), Jacob Lindsey (Hoover, Alabama), Samuel Caudill (Glade Spring, Virginia), and Tiger Greene (Alpharetta, Georgia) represented SUDIA at the summit. Chosen from thousands of applicants nationwide, the ambassadors were part of a collection of activities aimed at advancing the success of FUTP 60.
Among the highlights of the summit were a NFL fitness session, media and nutrition training, and discussions on how to improve the program Playbook.
