PLAY60 App Screenshot_1The American Heart Association and NFL on Thursday released an updated version of the NFL PLAY 60 app, which now includes a virtual race to Super Bowl LI in Houston and new rewards for daily play from the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

In the race to the Super Bowl, players “run” cross-country to visit the 32 NFL cities while earning stars and chances to win at the prize wheel.

The NFL PLAY 60 version 2.2 and its predecessors encourage active play by requiring players to actually run, jump and turn while holding their devices to move in-game characters, who collect coins and earn achievement badges.

The app encourages kids to get the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity.

The free NFL PLAY 60 app is available for iOS and Android devices.
