AHA Works with PTAs to Encourage Families to Play

Advocates for Health in Action is teaming up with PTAs and schools around Wake County to get families moving and making healthier choices. This fall, AHA partnered with the North Carolina PTA (NCPTA) to offer a fun Parents Play Day at the Poe Center in Raleigh. In celebration and preparation for Worldwide Day of Play, parents participated in a grocery cart relay, limbo contest and a playground scavenger hunt.  

Parents Play Day was planned to inspire parents to do something special for Worldwide Day of Play and think of new ways to add more play into every day. Following the event, NCPTA launched a Champions of Play grant opportunity for PTAs.
