Chairwoman Jennie Finch, Board Members Grant Hill, Paul Pierce and a coalition of 37 professional athletes, both active and retired from 16 sports, have united to fight the childhood obesity epidemic in America. This core group has developed ‘nPLAY, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) foundation. The goal is to raise money that can be put directly back into schools so they can obtain the tools to change the culture inside to one of health and wellness and meet the criteria of the USDA’s HealthierUS Schools Challenge. This group of world class athletes has committed themselves on both a national and local level to help and encourage students’, teachers and parents strive for a healthier lifestyle so our children can have the futures they deserve. ‘nPlay is a peer-to-peer movement where one athlete asks another to join.
