Sports Authority teams with NFL to help youth stay active

DENVER Sports Authority, in conjunction with NFL PLAY 60 and USA Football, the official youth football development partner of the NFL, announced the launch of the "Pass the Good" donation program.

Through the program, customers can donate their football cleats, gloves and officially licensed NFL apparel at Sports Authority locations nationwide to help youth in their local communities stay active and healthy as part of NFL PLAY 60, the league's youth health and fitness campaign.  Those who donate merchandise through the "Pass the Good" program will receive a $10 Sports Authority cash card in return, good toward an in-store purchase.  The gear and apparel collected during the six-week campaign will be distributed to youth football leagues in need nationwide who are affiliated with USA Football.

"Sports Authority is proud to team with NFL PLAY 60 and USA Football to encourage youth sports participation and physical activity through the "Pass the Good" donation program," said Sports Authority CEO, David Campisi.  "Ensuring that our nation's youth all have the opportunity to get involved in team sports is of paramount importance to Sports Authority and we are honored to have the opportunity to help spearhead this campaign together with the NFL.  By encouraging America's youth to 'PLAY 60' today, we are ensuring a healthier tomorrow for children across the country.
