Before things got a little crazy this January, the Seattle Seahawks paid a visit to their fans last month at Black Diamond Elementary School near Enumclaw. Black Diamond Elementary as participating in the NFL PLAY 60 Super School Program which encourages students to be active for 60 minutes a day. Comcast was pleased to air a PSA about the campaign, above. Black Diamond was one of the entrants. And then it became one of 34 schools around the country that were honored in a very special way.
The NFL Network, The Seahawks, and Comcast presented this Enumclaw School District school with a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 grant for health and wellness programming or equipment. They also hosted a special assembly where players, Sea Gals and Blitz led activities and focused on the importance of being active and healthy.
