Playworks‘ mission is to improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play. Playworks, like SBS, uses play as a medium for people to have fun. We are excited to announcement our partnership to ensure we give the next generation of SBSers the opportunity to play and have fun.
Playworks currently serves more than 900 schools in 23 U.S. cities, and reaches more than half of a million students directly and through professional training services. They are changing school climate by leveraging the power of safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day. Playworks creates a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills.
Our Goal: As the Social Boston Sports Community, we’ve set a goal to raise $30,000 over the course of 2016 in order to fund one Playworks school. Broken down, this is only $1.36 from every active player in the SBS community. Let’s do this!
