Virtual Exercise World Record

Donovan McNabb and the Washington Redskins set a World Record this week, but it had nothing to do with football. On FedEx Field in Washington, the Redskins hosted the largest virtual exercise lesson. The event hopes to inspire kids and adults to fight obesity.


646 Kids Krush Record

On September 21, 2010, a total of 646 kids from the Washington, Virginia and Maryland came out to the exercise lesson. All the children participated in a bunch of different exercises for 30 minutes. Donovan was there to help motivate the kids to do the exercises properly with lots of energy.

Children followed the virtual exercise lesson on the 100-foot-wide HD video boards overlooking the field. It featured a series of intense, fun football drills hosted by Redskins players including Donovan.


Play 60

The event was part of Donovan’s promotions of a new program called PLAY 60. The program is showing children ways to get 60 minutes of exercise everyday. The goal is to lower the obesity problem in America.

Donovan says, “Too many kids have grown accustomed to staying inside and watching television, playing video games or logging on the Internet.” This is why obesity has become one of the biggest health problems in America.


Dangerous Diseases

If you don’t know what obesity is, it’s when someone is overweight and his or her body fat level is so high that it becomes a dangerous health condition. Did you know that obesity is why people get dangerous diseases like:


  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer

These diseases aren’t the only problem. Obesity is not fun. Losing weight is extremely difficult to do once you have put on the pounds. It’s much easier to stop gaining weight when you’re young and you have lots of free time to play sports and try new things.
