From Ketchikan to Kaktovik, children across Alaska will gather at 10 a.m. on Feb. 22 in school gyms, recreation centers and classrooms over a live video feed and participate in a half-hour of fun physical activity for PLAAY Day 2018, an Alaska Sports Hall of Fame initiative, with connectivity provided by GCI, Alaska’s largest telecommunications and technology company.
Physical activity is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve a child’s self-worth. It increases capacity for learning, reduces chronic diseases, increases positive behaviors and can help prevent depression/suicide.
Visit the PLAAY website for more information.
