The New York Jets and United Way Donate a Fitness Zone to East Dover

Since 1999, NFL teams have participated in a variety of hands-on community service projects, known collectively as Hometown Huddle. The NFL-United Way Hometown Huddle is a league-wide day of service designed to bring awareness and impact to the issue of youth health and fitness. During Hometown Huddle, NFL players, coaches and leadership participate in a variety of youth fitness projects in different NFL cities across the country on the same day. 
We are proud to announce the New York Jets selected East Dover as their 2015 Hometown Huddle partner building a fitness trail in our courtyard.  On October 20th, NFL representatives including the NY JETS players were at our school to dedicate the fitness trail.
