On Saturday Sept. 6th Boys & Girls Clubs of America kicked off the Day for Kids season with a field day event in Atlanta’s historic Grant Park, where hundreds of adults teamed up with friends and colleagues and Club kids to compete in relay races and games, including Dodgeball and tug-of-war. Day for Kids is a nationwide initiative by Boys & Girls Clubs of America that engages adults to advocate for youth through fun, community events at Clubs nationwide in September.
Thanks to Olympic gold medalist Gail Devers and NFL Hall of Famer Chris Doleman teams competed to help raise awareness and fund to support Boys & Girls Clubs. Joining us are famous Boys & Girls Club supporters. The event was hosted by Hot 107.9’s very own Reec and music was provided by Dj Shine (Young Legendz DJs).
With support from great partners like University of Phoenix nationally and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, Cartoon Network, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Coca-Cola locally and communities nationwide, one day can change the lives of millions of kids and put them on the path to a great future.
With Day for Kids and through Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Great Futures Campaign, the organization is tackling major issues facing our children and our country by mobilizing the nation in support of after-school and summer programs.
