2nd Annual Right To Play Ball | Supporting Children’s Education Through Sports

“Play helps teach important life lessons and develop skills like cooperation, leadership and teamwork.” – Right To Play

Here’s a great event and cause we’re really looking forward to!

Sports have always been a powerful way to transform and educate children – especially those facing adversity and disability. This is the thought behind Right To Play, an organization that uses the transformative nature of its play-based programs to help children in over 20 countries build essential life skills and better futures.
