GENYOUth was founded through a partnership with The NFL and the National Dairy Council so ensuring that our nation's youth are both active and nourished is core to our DNA. Each year at Super Bowl, we work closely with the tremendous teams at the Super Bowl Host Committees, as well as partners in each city, to support local youth.
This year as part of #NFL100 (The NFL's 100th Anniversary), partners including the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee, Miami Dolphins, Dairy Council of Florida, and corporate partners Florida Blue, Florida Power and Light and Chevron with Sunshine Gasoline worked together to provide 100 Grab and Go Breakfast Carts to South Florida schools. The Florida Super School Breakfast initiative helps tackle youth food insecurity and ensure that students start each day with a nutritious breakfast.
We're thrilled to share pictures from the official ribbon cutting celebration, which helped kick-off Super Bowl Weekend and featured NFL Legend/Hall of Famer Cris Carter, Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho, Miami Super Bowl Host Committee Executive Director Ray Martinez along with NFL and Miami Dolphins Leadership at Brownsville Middle School.
And as is always the case, our intrepid CEO, Alexis Glick made the rounds on Super Bowl's Radio Row with Miami Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to talk about our work with our partners to support healthy, high achieving youth, even stopping by to meet with Katie Couric and Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassador, Kayla one of the winners of Sleep Number and GENYOUth's Super Sleep Contest. You can check out their interview here! We'll certainly need to catch up on our sleep after this action-packed weekend!
Thanks to everyone who made these efforts possible! 1+1+1 is far greater than 3!
