Let’s Play helps provide kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority. Many kids aren’t given adequate opportunity to burn the calories they consume through daily physical activity. By providing underserved communities with safe, accessible playgrounds and sports equipment, we’re making play possible for more kids and doing our part to help eliminate the play deficit.

In partnership with the nonprofit organizations KaBOOM! and Good Sports, Let’s Play is working to eliminate the ‘play deficit’ by building and improving play spaces and providing grants for athletic equipment and gear.
