The Carolina Panthers surprised an Irmo elementary school at a pep rally to get students pumped up about healthy living. Some Panther players and the Southeastern Dairy Association presented the school a $10,000 grant to promote physical activity and nutrition.
Panthers star linebacker Thomas Davis said he was excited to be there. "We've got kids out here, and we're trying to teach them the importance of eating healthy, being physically active, and going out to do the right things," Davis said. "We're excited to be here today, and hopefully they'll enjoy having us."
