NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Mayor's Field Day Saturday in Nashville is Mayor Karl Dean's health challenge to fight obesity.

Some of the games to be played at LP Field are a tire roll, water run, sack hop and football toss. Current and former Tennessee Titans' players will participate since the event is a joint effort with the NFL Play60 campaign.
