PAL, a charitable non-profit organization whose mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of young people in Philadelphia, has selected children based on their dedication to PAL's mission and their level of involvement in PAL's Flag Football Program to participate in the Lincoln Financial Group event. Throughout the day, the kids will have the chance to check out the Eagles locker room, play on the field, participate in a football station challenge with several Philadelphia Eagles players and participate in a flag football game that will be coached by Philadelphia Eagles Players. Members of the Philadelphia Eagle's Cheerleaders will also be on-hand cheering on the PAL kids.
Sgt. Michael Faust, Supervising Sergeant of the four participating PAL centers, says "This is a tremendous opportunity for our youngsters. PAL youngsters work hard every day to avoid the negative influences in their neighborhoods and instead come to PAL centers to take advantage of so many opportunities, from getting help with their homework to working on their social skills and fitness level through the Flag Football Program. Lincoln Financial Group is a great partner, and friend, to PAL and we are so grateful for everything they do. They go above and beyond what it means to be a donor."
