Play Day – The National Day of Play is June 29

Play Day is June 29, and it is an annual national celebration uplifting the lifelong benefits of sport, play & movement for kids and the neighborhoods where we live. Play Day was launched in Los Angeles and promotes the joy and value in the shared experiences of when we play together.

 

The Play Equity Fund and the LA84 Foundation join our partners on this exciting moment each year to support more equitable experiences in youth sports and play programs. Play Day celebrates our shared goal for healthy and productive children – and build community on a national scale. Play Day shows that sports and the joy of play have the power to connect us, help us understand each other better, and build more promising futures for young people.

Play Day follows Mental Health Awareness Month in May. The isolation and disruptions of the pandemic have led to new mental health challenges for youth. The LA84 Foundation and the Play Equity Fund are facing these challenges young people are experiencing by focusing on the healing power of sport, play and movement.

 

The LA84 Foundation and Play Equity Fund are supporting Play Day sites locally, statewide, and nationally with a “Play Day in a Box” kit. These kits allow partners to have the tools needed to host a local Play Day and includes instructions for activities.
