New PSAs to Launch at New Orleans Saints' Hometown Huddle Day and Air In-game
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), the Ad Council and the National Football League (NFL) will join to launch a new series of national public service advertisements (PSAs) designed to combat childhood obesity by encouraging physical activity among children. The new ads, which feature NFL players Reggie Bush (New Orleans Saints), Antonio Gates (San Diego Chargers) and Jason Witten (Dallas Cowboys), urge families to "get up and play an hour a day." The PSAs will be unveiled this morning during the NFL's United Way Hometown Huddle Event in New Orleans, part of the NFL's national day of service. The ads will also air during NFL games throughout the football season.
