Over 2,000 runners participated in Playworks Arizona's 5th Annual 'Run the Runway'—a 15K, 10K, 5K and 1 Mile Kids Dash event—at the Scottsdale Airport. This event, sponsored by United Healthcare, raised over $100,000 which will go towards ensuring 80 schools in Arizona experience safe and healthy play next year!
During Governor Doug Ducey's visit to Loma Linda Elementary, he saw firsthand how Playworks changes the school climate, making it safe physically and emotionally for students, teachers and administrators.
“At Mattel, we believe in the power of play and the critical link between play and the healthy development and learning of children. With Playworks as a partner, we can directly and immediately translate that vision into direct impact with thousands of children each year.”
—Diedre Lind, Executive Director, Mattel Children’s Foundation
