Running Back Tim Hightower and Mom, Nikkie, Present $10,000 Play 60 Grant to Local School

11.03.2011 / Blog Posts Community Redskins

Running back Tim Hightower and his mom, Nikkie, had a busy afternoon at Steuart W. Weller Elementary School Tuesday, Nov. 1.

Along with running backs Ryan Torain and Roy Helu and fullback Darrel Young, the Hightowers presented a $10,000 NFL Play 60 grant to the school to go towards health and wellness programming and equipment.

Hightower spoke to the students about the importance of good health. Along with his teammates, he also led the “Ultimate NFL Physical Education Class” as part of the NFL’s Play 60 campaign to help get kids 60 minutes of exercise a day.

Nikkie Hightower presented the Procter & Gamble P&G Super Parents award to Mindy Smith - a check for $1,000 in her name to support the school’s athletic department.

Nikkie also spoke to the students; “I want you to just look at your little bodies and if you don’t remember anything else, I want you to remember that you are beautifully and wonderfully made. But your body cannot go on unless you give it activity. We’re here today, to encourage you to go outside and live an active lifestyle.”

Steuart W. Wellar Elementary School was chosen to represent the Redskins as one of the “NFL PLAY 60 Super Schools,” through their successful Back to Football Friday event.
