The Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative is a recipient of the Let's Play Everywhere Challenge!
Created by KaBOOM!, the national non-profit dedicated to giving all kids the childhood they deserve through play, and Let's Play , from Keurig Dr Pepper, the Let's Play Everywhere Challenge is about creating opportunities for free, unstructured, unplanned play. It is about ensuring all kids, no matter where they come from or where they live, get the active play they need to thrive.
Our project, the Neighborhood Play Stop Project, will continue the work of the Hazelwood Play Trail.
This article is part of our Member Blog Series, which showcases Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative Members' efforts and commitment to ensure that play is a critical element in the lives of people of all ages. Each month, a different member organization will share their take on how play is a part of the work they do.
