Get out and play more

Bring Back Play Funmobile coming to 100 Mile House on July 20

The Bring Back Play Funmobile tour is coming to 100 Mile House on July 20.

It will be at Centennial Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre from 2 to 5 p.m.

Sponsored by ParticipACTION and Healthy Families BC, the Bring Back Play Funmobile tour takes a van full of fun games, activities and giveaways to communities throughout British Columbia.

To help reverse the decline of play, ParticipACTION created a national social change marketing campaign, called Bring Back Play, to rally and inspire parents and caregivers to motivate children to move more.

Thanks to Participation’s provincial partnership with the Ministry of Health, the campaign is co-branded with Healthy Families BC, and includes the Bring Back Play Funmobile tour to encourage youth to get out and move, while educating parents on the importance of play.

ParticipACTION and Healthy Families BC want to make physical activity a vital and fulfilling part of everyday life, and play is a fun way to achieve this.
