Time

11:00 am - 5:30 pm

BTB Fitness is throwing down the challenge on June 20 in support of the Playworks’ mission. Open to men and women of all levels, BTB Fitness invites you to LIFT to PLAY for the 1900 Georgia children being served daily by Playworks. 100% of the proceeds will be used to support our local program.

Playworks puts the play back into the playgrounds of 900 low-income schools across the country, serving more than 500,000 students through direct service and training for school year 2014-15. Launching in Georgia in 2014 with support from the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation, Playworks’ three metro Atlanta partner schools are experiencing tremendous outcomes in their first year.

A randomized controlled trial of Playworks conducted by the John W. Gardner Center at Stanford University and Mathematica Policy Research, found that our recess program reduced bullying, improved feelings of safety, increased physical activity, and provided more time for classroom teaching.

We invite you to come lift, eat, drink, and play at BTB Fitness and Lost Dog Tavern and become Recess Rock Stars to ensure that Georgia kids have access to healthy, active play every day, unlocking our kids’ superpowers and yours!!!
