A Successful Play Everywhere Tour 2018

  1. Updates

We joined forces with Target and KaBOOM! to bring four communities outside to play. Kids, parents, and community members in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Miami high-fived and smiled throughout the Play Everywhere tour this February and March.

Wellness guru Massy Arias spoke about the importance of fitness and led exercises from the stage. 123 Andrés brought energy to the stage as well, increasing excitement and engagement among participants.

Community members dove into the obstacle course, jumped into exercise stations, showed off their foursquare and hoola-hoop skills, jumped ropes, and decorated the scene with sidewalk chalk. Food trucks also made the events special, offering local and healthy meals for the community to enjoy.

We were happily joined by other event partners such as the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the National Recreation and Park Association.
