EVENTS INCLUDE FIFTH ANNUAL “NFL PLAY 60 COMMUNITY BLITZ” ON JANUARY 22
In celebration of the 2014 Pro Bowl, the NFL will host a series of community events throughout Oahu in the days leading up to the game. From tree plantings to fundraisers to the fifth annual “NFL PLAY 60 Community Blitz,” the events will enable the NFL and its players to share in the spirit of Aloha by giving back to the communities of Oahu.
During the Blitz, hosted with the NFLPA, Pro Bowl players, NFL representatives and local volunteers will take part in service projects across Oahu on Wednesday, January 22. The projects are designed to help local children stay healthy and active as part of NFL PLAY 60, the league’s campaign to fight childhood obesity, as well as to show support for our nation’s military, with events occurring on military bases around the Island.
During Blitz activities, NFL players, military families and wounded warriors will work together to create a unique mural at both Schofield Army Barracks and Kaneohe Bay Marine Base (K-Bay). In addition, K-Bay and Pearl Harbor will also host NFL PLAY 60 Festivals and cheer clinics. Soldiers at Schofield Barracks will also work alongside players to create healthy food packs that will be distributed to families in base’s Women, Infant and Children’s program.
All K-Bay events will be made possible by USAA, the NFL’s official military appreciation sponsor and presenting sponsor of the Pro Bowl Practice on Joint Base Harbor Hickam on Thursday, January 23.
Additionally, the NFL will host a Punt, Pass & Kick event led by Pro Bowl Captains with athletes from the Special Olympics of Hawaii.
