Trent Murphy lent a helping hand as some of the youngest Washington Redskins fans learned what Fuel Up to Play 60 is all about over the weekend.
TM, along with several teammates and Redskins cheerleaders, headed to Park View High School in Sterling, Virginia, on Saturday in partnership with the American Dairy Association North East and the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. They played host to children from 10 area elementary schools, teaching the students how to eat right and play hard to stay healthy.
The kids met a heifer named Snickerdoodle and a calf named Maid Marian, and received a lesson in nutrition from local dairy farmers. They also did farmers carries with weighted buckets—an old school farm boy workout that Trent knows well—while getting insight into the hard work done by dairy farmers.
Children also ran through an obstacle course hosted by Urban Kangaroo, as well as combine-style drills and an interesting tic-tac-toe relay race.
It was a terrific day, not only for the kids, but also for Trent and his teammates.
“It means a lot to me,” said Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland. “It’s something I didn’t have when I grew up, I just feel like it’s my duty to give back to the kids of this world.”
