Thanks for Playing!

Thanks for Playing!
June 21st was the first day of summer, the longest day of the year and ... the Longest Day of Play!

Together with ParticipACTION we put out a challenge to make extra time in your busy schedules for some time to play. Then we asked you to visit to log those minutes.

In one day we logged 55,260 minutes of play! That means Canadians logged at least 30 minutes of play almost 2,000 times. That's a lot playing on the monkey bars, bikes, in the pool, your backyards and playgrounds.

Congratulations Canada!

Meantime, play on!
