The program featured a discussion on strength training and nutrition as well as students performing physical activities similar to those at an NFL training camp. The activities were facilitated by Jon Laird, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Educational Advisory Panel and Physical Education instructor. Also helping facilitate the day's activities were coaches and players from Division II Walsh University's football team. Walsh, located in nearby North Canton, Ohio, plays its home games at Pro Football Hall of Fame Field at Fawcett Stadium.
One of the schools that participated was joined by Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Charlie Batch. These students were able to make the visit through his Best of the Batch Foundation which is based just outside of Pittsburgh in Batch’s hometown of Homestead, Pennsylvania.
