After their big Super Bowl matchup, two NFL players from the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers visited students at local Fuel Up to Play 60 schools as part of the Breakfast Blitz to talk about the importance of eating a healthy breakfast every day.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Torrey Smith visited Chase Elementary School in Maryland last week while former San Francisco 49er’s wide receiver, Dwight Clark stopped by Campbell Middle School in California today. Their visits were part of the Breakfast Blitz, a promotion between “got milk?” and Fuel Up to Play 60 that will provide $250,000 in grants to local Fuel Up to Play 60 schools across the country.
In Maryland, Torrey Smith grabbed a bowl of cereal and showed off pictures of the Ravens’ Super Bowl trophy before reminding the students that drinking milk and eating a healthy breakfast every morning is an important part of their daily routine.
In California, Dwight Clark – former NFL wide receiver and two-time Super Bowl champion with the 49ers – huddled up with students and participated in a broadcast segment that was seen by the entire school.
The Breakfast Blitz promotion continues through February 17, 2013. When you purchase milk during the promotion, you can vote to help direct a $1,000 Fuel Up to Play 60 grant to a school in your area.
