On Monday, September 29, dozens of PAL kids participated in Coca-Cola’s Get the Ball Rolling initiative at The Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field.

Coca-Cola and the Philadelphia Eagles teamed up to host a youth football clinic that introduced inner-city kids to active and healthy lifestyles, fitness, and nutrition.

This football-themed event provided an opportunity for boys and girls from PAL to take part in activities on the same field that their hometown Eagles play on!  Kids participated in drills that allowed them to stay physically active, learn football techniques, catch touchdowns, and play where the pros do.

During the event, excited children were able to interact with Eagles’ Punter Donnie Jones, spend time with everyone’s favorite mascot, Swoop, and enjoy meeting the Eagles Cheerleaders.

Participants were also treated to a special VIP dinner where they heard from a nutritionist and Eagles’ Linebacker Emmanuel Acho.

PAL thanks Coca-Cola and the Philadelphia Eagles for providing our PAL kids with a thrilling and insightful experience.
