The Los Angeles Rams have a new home at the Coliseum, and along with it, new neighbors. To celebrate their new community, the Rams hosted a Play 60 Character Camp Thursday, bringing together 350 local children in a three-hour camp. The Play 60 initiative is sponsored by the National Football League, and aims to encourage kids to be more active and lead healthier lives.
Current Rams players Troy Hill and Mike Jordan, along with former players Roland Williams and Kyle Turley, were on hand to help coach the kids and run football and fitness drills. The event was put on in partnership with the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, a group that looks to inspire inner city youth through the game of football.
The children also got the chance to hang out with the Rams mascot, Rampage, and a few of their cheerleaders. Aside from promoting a healthy lifestyle, the camp also focused on several values associated with the sport, including character and teamwork. The Rams organization hopes that by sponsoring events like Play 60, they will become a more active member of the Los Angeles community.
