The Play 60 initiative encourages kids to get at least 60 minutes of active play each day, and one of the best places to be active is at one of the fun-filled Tennessee State Parks and 54 parks statewide, there's one near you including Cordell Hull, Pickett State Park, Standing Stone, Alvin C. York, Burgess Falls and Cumberland Mountain. Going hiking along one of the state's many beautiful rivers, or find a site and camp out with the family. Many of the parks offer Junior Ranger camps scheduled through out the summer.
The caravan has traveled to 22 schools across the region to deliver high-energy, educational message from a Titans player, eight-time Pro Bowl Titans mascot T-Rac, host Rhett Bryan, and representatives from Tennessee State Parks.
Brett Kern, punter for the Titans talked to the students at PCK-8 about the importance of being active, eating right, the importance of listening to your teachers and parents and to always make the right choices.
