Anytime Fitness Cary - Playworks Fundraiser
Drew Biks fundraising for Anytime Fitness Cary
At Playworks, we believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. We create a place for every child on the playground – a place where every child belongs, has fun and is a part of the game.
Playworks is the only nonprofit organization in the country that sends professionally trained, full-time program coordinators, called “Coaches” to low-income, urban schools, where they transform recess and play into a positive learning experience and create an environment where children canthrive.
Coaches encourage children to bring out the best in themselves and each other, and learn the value of fair play, compassion and respect through classic games like kickball and four-square and new games designed to build leadership skills and foster teamwork.
These elements teach kids conflict resolution, leadership and respect, which proves to reduce bullying on the playground and in turn, increases class participation because kids return focused and ready to learn.
