Day of Play is a two-hour event that gives local children the opportunity to socialize and exercise with current and former WVU Athletes, while learning about the importance of health and fitness. The event aims to get the idea of being active in kids’ heads at an early age and show them it’s fun to be fit! Children will have the opportunity to meet several current and former WVU Athletes, participate in several activities and be given a snack. There will be a silent auction at the event with all proceeds going to Get Moving!

The Get Moving! Day of Play is a two-stage campaign that brings the NFL Play 60 ideology back home to our children in the state of West Virginia as the Day of Play. According to The State of Obesity Report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, if the current trend continues, West Virginia’s adult obesity rate will rise to reach above 60 percent by 2030. Because of this, it is our mission to reverse the trend in the children's generation, and to start it right now through the inspirations of their athletic heroes.
