The Pro Football Hall of Fame in partnership with the NFL celebrated the kickoff of the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls on Wednesday, Aug. 2 in Canton, Ohio.
For the 18th straight year, the national celebration began with Play Football “First Play” during which 3,000 children formed a human chain and passed a football along a three-mile route from the location in downtown Canton where the National Football League was founded to the front steps of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Play Football “First Play” participants received a T-shirt, free admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and lunch on the Hall of Fame grounds.
Fans or youth groups interested in participating in the free Play Football “First Play” in 2018 may register by contacting the Pro Football Hall of Fame at FirstPlay@ProFootballHOF.com.
