49ers DL Arik Armstead Hosts Free Football Camp

Armstead hosted 150 Sacramento-area kids at an entirely free event on Tuesday. Check out the top photos from the day.

Arik Armstead began the summer break by doing some good for his local community. The Elk Grove, Calif., native returned home on Tuesday to put on his first youth football camp.

There were approximately 150 boys and girls in attendance from the local Sacramento area. The best part of the event was that the camp was 100 percent free for each kid who participated.

Armstead was joined at the camp by fellow San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Tony Jerod-Eddie, his family and his former high school coaches.

Also on-hand was Cooper, a Make a Wish kid who is currently battling leukemia. Cooper's wish was granted last November when he was given VIP treatement at the 49ers win against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9. Armstead extended an invitation to attend the camp so Cooper could continue to stay connected with his favorite football team.

Here are the highlights from the day via social media.

Was a great day
