Your Child's Health

One hour to better health - Fifth-graders at School 15 got an energetic visit from New York Giants cornerback, Prince Amukamara. Mr. Amukamara came to Paterson as part of the Giant’s “Fuel Up to Play 60” initiative aimed at getting kids moving and eating healthy. While at School 15, the rising football star spent time doing numerous exercises with the students and spoke about nutrition and health. The program’s name alludes to the notion that all it takes is 60 minutes a day for kids to have a healthier lifestyle. The program is funded by the NFL in association with the National Dairy Council.
