In 2007, the NFL launched NFL PLAY 60, a national youth health and fitness initiative focused on increasing the wellness of young fans by encouraging them to be physically active for at least 60 minutes a day. The NFL has partnered with leading organizations to increase physical activity among youth and has committed more than $352 million to youth health and fitness through PLAY 60 programming, grants, and media time for public service announcements.

Over the past decade, with the help of NFL teams, players and partner organizations, PLAY 60 programming has been implemented into more than 73,000 schools, and over 265 NFL Youth Fitness Zones have been constructed nationwide, providing millions of kids with access and resources to play. Finding easy, fun and accessible ways to get kids to PLAY 60 is more important than ever before.

Aubrey was invited on Good Morning America for her big accomplishment. The 5th grader participates in the school’s Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) program. She was a national semi-finalist in the NFL Super Kid competition. 

Earlier yesterday morning, she was surprised by the hosts of ABC's Good Morning America, with the help of her favorite NFL player, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Dereck Carr, who shared that she will serve as Good Morning America's Kid Correspondent throughout the week of Super Bowl LVI. During the week leading up to the game, Aubrey will attend Super Bowl Experience and interview players and celebrities on the Red Carpet at NFL Honors presented by Invisalign, among other events.

“Dr. Carreon Academy is so excited for Aubrey. She is definitely our Comets NFL SuperKid,” said Jory Kirchhevel, FUTP 60 program advisor.
