KUSA - The NFL is helping kids and communities “fuel up” for greatness this fall.
They kicked off the 2016 Hometown Grant program Wednesday at Allendale Elementary School in Arvada.
It’s called the Play 60 initiative and it provides grants to support physical activity and nutrition programs in school districts in all 32 NFL markets.
The NFL Denver Broncos Fuel Up to Play 60 and the National Foundation on Fitness hope to encourage kids to lead healthier lives.
Jordin Sparks even made a guest appearance and an exciting announcement.
"So whatever the NFL gives, the National Foundation on Fitness is going to double it!" Sparks announced. "So that’s more money for your fitness programs, which is going to be fun!"
The organizations gave the Jefferson County School district a $10,000 hometown grant. An additional $30,000 in equipment and resources will help kids live healthier lives.
