The Raiders are helping Clark County School District students stay healthy and active even before the team officially moves to Las Vegas.

Former players and the Raiderettes were at Sandy Searles Miller Academy Wednesday. The team, along with the Dairy Council of Nevada, awarded CCSD $10,000. 

The Hometown Grants are part of a larger initiative between the NFL and Fuel Up to Play 60 to supply a grant to a school district in each of the 32 NFL markets, in hopes of making a difference in the overall health and wellness of students across the country.

"I love being around kids, because they are our future and we need to keep them on the straight line," said Reggie Kinlaw, who played for the Raiders in the late '70s and early 80s. "So they get their exercise. Stay in school and get their education."

The students also participated in an assembly and a youth football camp.
