Day of Action

Each year on and around June 21, communities around the world come together to harness the volunteer spirit and improve the conditions in which they live. In 2014, thousands of people in 300 communities - from Macon, Georgia to Mumbai, India - committed their time and their passion to creating long-lasting solutions that benefit everyone.

Here in Kenosha we partnered up with schools throughout the summer months to add both educational components and action stencils to promote physical activity.  

Created in partnership with Fuel Up to Play60, the stencils that volunteers painted inspired kids to learn and move while creating games around the stencils. Research finds that elementary school children spend more of their recess and activity time in active play when schoolyards are enhanced with playground markings.

Mark your calendar for the morning of Tuesday, June 21, 2016 for this year's Day of Action project!!
