This year, 10 middle schools competed in the program to learn about the importance of daily exercise for the chance to win funds for their school's P.E. department. The sixth grade students at each school logged their daily exercise for four weeks, and the school with the highest average of minutes exercising per student was promised a customized P.E. makeover. Pierce Middle School came in first place in this year's challenge, and five other schools - Franklin Boys Preparatory Academy, Liberty Middle School, Stewart Middle School, Turkey Creek Middle School and Mulrennan Middle School - will each receive a $1,000 donation for their P.E. programs.

 

On Tuesday, Buccaneers players including defensive end Da'Quan Bowers and linebackers Lavonte David and Dekoda Watson, as well as Buccaneers Cheerleaders and members of the American Heart Association, will speak to the students about the importance of physical activity and sound nutrition before presenting Pierce Middle School with a $5,000 donation. Sixth grade students will also have the chance to participate in a P.E. class led by the Buccaneers players and cheerleaders, joining together in their commitment to living fit and active lifestyles.
