May 14, 2013 (Fayettveille, NC) — The Carolina Panthers, including new addition and military support himself, Drayton Florence, traveled to Fort Bragg in partnership with Lenovo and the USO of North Carolina to host a Play 60 football camp for children on-base, a culture change forum and spend time with our troops today. In addition to Florence, welcoming the children to the Play 60 Camp were several other Panthers players, Defensive Coordinator Sean McDermott, TopCats and soldiers.   225 5th graders from on-post elementary schools will had the opportunity to run out of the Panthers inflatable tunnel and participate in a football camp side-by-side with Panthers football players and TopCats.  The camp featured eight training camp like stations that tested their football skills and endurance. “My foundation is committed to supporting our military families both here and overseas fighting for our freedom”, said Florence. “It was an honor and a privilege to be able to spend today with these incredible families, these kids, who sacrifice so much.” To promote positive culture change, the NFL and US Army signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which the NFL and Army pledged to work together to share information, provide education, and engage in discussion on concussion and other health-related issues that affect both organizations.  To address this issue, our organizations hosted a culture change forum to encourage dialogue between players and soldiers, two groups who mutually respect each other.  After the forum, the Panthers spent time with troops at lunch and at the leadership reaction course on base.
