Rise Up 159
Join the Movement
159 Georgia Counties Served
Through its Rise Up! 159 initiative, the Atlanta Falcons are bringing NFL Flag Football to more children in every one of Georgia's 159 counties. Visit www.GeorgiaShape.org to find out how children in your community can join the NFL Flag Football movement.
In partnership with Georgia Shape, the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation is seeking applications from Georgia elementary and middle schools, parks & rec departments, and community-based organizations interested in expanding participation in NFL Flag Football. Open to all children ages 6 to 14, NFL Flag Football delivers unsurpassed fun while also enabling children to improve their physical strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity – ultimately contributing to reduced levels of childhood obesity. In August 2017, the Atlanta Falcons launched Rise Up! 159, a new statewide flag football initiative, with school partners in every one of Georgia's 159 counties.
