Our friends from the NFL’s PLAY 60 campaign recently visited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the NFL PLAY 60 Bus. Tennessee Titans players Marc Mariani and Gerald McRath and cheerleaders Jessi and Tiffany hosted a fun-filled pep rally for our patients and their families. While they were at the hospital, the Titans and cheerleaders signed autographs, posed for pictures, led the children in dances and shared smiles with the patients and their families.

This visit celebrated the new relationship between St. Jude and the NFL, which hopes to give all kids a chance to ‘Play 60.’ For the past two months fans visited to watch the NFL PLAY 60 Fit & Funny Files campaign, a series of digital spots featuring kids working out and telling jokes alongside NFL players, coaches, mascots and cheerleaders. Fans then voted on each week’s NFL PLAY 60 Fit & Funny Champ. During their visit to the hospital the NFL also donated $100,000 to St. Jude based on the success of the campaign.
