Recess at Lambeau

  1. Updates

 

On Saturday, March 7, the Green Bay Packers invited their youngest fans to take part in the twelfth annual Project Play 60 at Lambeau Field. Play 60 is a day focused on getting kids physically active after a long winter. This year’s event was another success with more than 4,000 people in attendance. Playworks Wisconsin along with Playworks Illinois took part in the action by bringing recess to the families in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

According to David Anderson, Playworks Wisconsin program manager, "Project Play 60 was a great opportunity for Playworks to remind everyone of the power of play. We had participants ages 2-72 playing together for hours in flag-tag, switch, and four-square. Families left with smiles, sweaty brows, and excitement to continue playing the games at home!"

 

The goal of Project Play 60 is to get kids active and make them excited about exercise. In addition to Playworks recess games, kids could participate in a wide variety of activities including climbing walls, trampolines, and inflatables. It was a fun-filled day for all and we would like to thank the Green Bay Packers for letting us join Project Play 60 and Playworks Illinois for providing additional support.
