Colorado to Hold FIRST Statewide Recess Day- Partnership Opportunities!


Playworks has partnered with Kroenke Sports and Infinity Park (and the list of partners is growing) to create what we hope Governor Hickenlooper with declare Colorado Recess Day on Wednesday, October 5th.

To our knowledge (we are still double checking) this will be the nation's FIRST statewide Recess Day.

Even though we are the nations healthiest state, our childhood obesity rates are the second fastest growing in the nation. It's important that we continue to bring the importance of play and physical activity, at every age, to the forefront of our state's values. This day will highlights schools and organizations that are committed to this ideal.

Playworks is looking for additional partners in our endeavor to bring play and physical activity into the spotlight. Playworks is open to ideas/partnerships that will expand the day in new and creative ways. Embedded below (or via download) is a power point that describes the activities of the day so far. If your organization is interested in partnering or supporting this day (by allowing us to use your logo), please let Denver Executive Director Andrea Woolley know at awoolley@playworks.org or (720) 259-1029.
