Matt Elam, Lardarius Webb attend National Health Through Fitness Day event in Washington, D.C.

Matt Elam, along with Lardarius Webb, appeared at the 14th annual National Health Through Fitness Day in Washington, D.C. - Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Event was March 4-5.

Matt Elam's had a busy first year as a professional athlete.

He was drafted in the first round by the Baltimore Ravens. He became a starter early into the season. Following his first season, he traveled back to the University of Florida to work on finishing his degree. While in Gainesville, Fla., Elam took up a part-time job at Finish Line to gain retail experience for a future endeavor down the road.

Somehow, he made time to participate in an event in Washington, D.C. for an event for the 14th annual National Health Through Fitness Day. This event, geared toward eliminating the obesity epidemic, took place on March 4-5.

Elam was joined by fellow secondary member Lardarius Webb, with 15-20 celebrity athletes helping out.

In conjunction, two potential pieces of legislation were discussed. The first is the Personal Health Investment Today Act, which would "allow people to use of pre-tax medical accounts for physical activity expenses," according to a press release. The other piece of legislation is the Physical Education Program, which would be a 12-year federal grant for schools to rebuild their health and fitness programs.
