On a crisp fall morning, Playworks DC joined with the NFL, Washington Redskins, and NFL Play 60 to promote health and fitness at the NFL Fit for You 5k.  Hundreds of kids from the local DC community joined their families at the Washington National Harbor for a day of fun.  Leading up to the race, Playworks kept everyone moving with some great games of three-line football, Switch, and jump roping.  The Fit for You 5k was a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful fall weather, get active, and play hard.  Thanks to everyone who participated for a great day!
