NATIONAL CITY (CBS 8) - The Chargers are kicking off the campaign to get San Diego school kids up, out and moving around.
Players Darrell Stuckey and Kendall Reyes joined the American Heart Association and the YMCA at National City Middle School Wednesday to launch the Chargers' Play 60 Challenge. It's a six-week program that encourages students to be physically active for at least 60 minutes a day.
"Just kinda get the kids back to being kids, that's what it's all about. Just going out and having fun, letting them know they can put the phone down for a little bit. And they enjoy themselves, and they realize how fun it actually is," defensive end Kendall Reyes said.
More than 11,000 middle school students will be taking part in the program.
