Tampa Bay Bucs Draft Health and Fitness Number One Choice

Posted Feb 27, 2017

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers partnered with Florida Hospital presenting the 8 On Your Side Health and Fitness Expo for the 2017 Gasparilla Distance Classic.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers welcomed over 35,000 participants in search of the latest in health products and fitness activities. The Buccaneers fitness zone allowed guests to test their speed, agility, and quickness with the NFL's PLAY 60 Fitness Challenges. Each participant received a record book to track their best results against the pros; like Mike Evans, Kwon Alexander, and Jameis Winston.

Offensive Guard Ali Marpet and Defensive Tackle Clinton McDonald joined the Buccaneers fitness zone for a meet and greet and were even spotted running around drill stations with fans. Clinton McDonald shared what it takes to get on the Play 60 leaderboards and an overall commitment to health. “It starts with the mindset, you must have a healthy mindset and know what your goals are that you want to achieve,” said McDonald. “It’s easier for you to achieve your goals when you write them down and know what they are.”

While some participants took part in NFL drills, others caught Bucs fever in the Buccaneers -themed photo booth with authentic jerseys, Buccaneers helmets, and gear. Guests who shared the trending #CATCHBUCSFEVER hashtag on their social media pages received a chance to win two game tickets and sideline passes for the upcoming 2017 season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Florida Hospital embarked on a long-standing partnership launched in 2013. Associate Director of Sports and Community Partnerships of Florida Hospital, Dean Whaley, shares the pledge for dual community engagement. “The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Florida Hospital are committed to a fit and healthy community,” Whaley said. “We are here as the title sponsor of the Health & Fitness Expo in support of that.” Through community-wide health events, like the 8 On Your Side Health & Fitness Expo, the partnership holds true to its commitment in making a difference with health education and wellness initiatives for the Tampa Bay region.
