Play It Forward: Virtual Challenge
June 18, 2020
A virtual challenge that keeps kids, adults, families, corporate teams - really anyone! - connected, active, and having fun while helping millions of children around the world, including right here in Canada. All while practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 has affected us all. But its impacts on us are not equal.
Here in Canada, COVID-19 will have disproportionate impacts on children and families in Indigenous communities with limited access to health services, precarious and crowded living situations, lack of access to clean running water, and underlying trauma.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE CAN CHANGE THIS.
For 10 years, Right To Play has partnered with +85 Indigenous communities across Canada, and we continue to do so during the pandemic with daily online programs and training on how to support children through these challenging times for our Community Mentors, some of whom have been designated essential workers by their communities because of the important role they play in supporting youth health and well-being.
We need to support children now so they can help their communities recover and rebuild stronger than ever in the future. Right To Play has the expertise, the partnerships, and the teams to make that happen.
Your support will help us keep children safe and healthy, learning, and mentally strong.
