The Fitness Day has been postponed until a later undetermined date. Reed's foundation informed the school via an email early this morning that he wouldn't be able to take part in the Ftness Day scheduled from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

"Ed Reed and his Foundation have spent three hours this afternoon at Booker. T. Washington privately with the children going from classroom to classroom," Reed's foundation said in a statement to The Baltimore Sun. "Unfortunately, Ed was under the weather this morning and Fitness Day was postponed. We will hold Fitness Day in the weeks to come at Booker T."

Reed and several of his teammates are promoting fitness for youngsters through various programs this month.
