FLORHAM PARK - The New York Jets and the American Heart Association are teaming up to inspire Morris County kids to get active.

The team held a kickoff event for the Jets Play60 Challenge at Ridgedale Middle School in Florham Park on Tuesday. The program will also include sixth-graders in several Madison, Florham Park, and New Vernon schools.

The Challenge encourages kids to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity in school and another 30 outside of school. The hope is that schools become places that encourage physically active lifestyles year-round.
