SOUTH FORSYTH — The Atlanta Falcons know children need activity and exercise to grow up to be famous football players, and on Wednesday they helped encourage students at a local school along that path. During the Atlanta Falcons First Down for Fitness Kickoff event, about 150 students in third through fifth grades at Shiloh Point Elementary participated in a fitness training camp with two Falcons players, cheerleaders, staff members and the team’s mascot, Freddie Falcon. Footage from the event will be used to promote the team’s Play 60 campaign, which encourages one hour per day of physical activity.
