Tucson, AZ -

Hundreds of kids hit the playing field at Arizona Stadium Thursday night for the 1st "Team Up" event hosted by UA Football and head coach Rich Rodriguez.

The event gave children from 5-years through 8th grade, the opportunity to participate in practice drills and other football activities with Coach Rodriguez and his staff and Wildcat players.

The event is from 5– 6 p.m., and families are invited to stay and watch a family-friendly movie on the jumbotron at 6:30 p.m.

Kids of Steele is the family auxiliary of the UA Steele Children's Research Center and is dedicated to teaching children the importance of community service through service projects and family-friendly fundraising events that benefit the UA Steele Center.

The group has raised more than $100,000 in approximately three years.
