Players will help students stay active for 60 minutes a day, as part of the NFL PLAY 60 youth health and fitness campaign and Nike's Let Me Play program. On Wednesday, kids will learn and develop football skills and participate in character-building curriculum, supported by the Positive Coaching Alliance. Thursday's clinics will include NFL flag drills. Participating students were selected with support from the The New York City Sports Commission. Both days of clinics will be hosted by former Colts and Lions player Geneo Riley.

The Football Festival will take place in partnership with Nike Let Me Play. The event is open to the public and all attendees can test out NIKEiD, which allows users to go online and customize their own Nike footwear, enjoy samples of Frosted Flakes and receive giveaways as part of the Kellogg's Earn Your Stripes program, make playlists with Spiralfrog music service, and get active with the HOPSports Training System, an interactive technology-driven workout program.
