ST. PETERSBURG — Students at Fairmount Park Elementary School saw a few new faces around campus today, when members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers presented the school with a $10,000 NFL PLAY 60 grant.

Buccaneer players, cheerleaders and team mascot Captain Fear descended on the school to encourage students to be active for at least 60 minutes a day to fight childhood obesity. Bucs players led students in fitness activities, and school officials were presented with a $10,000 grant to spend on health and wellness programs or equipment.
