Agency readies for next healthy play day

Agency readies for next healthy play day

To raise awareness and advocate for safe, accessible play spaces for children of Rochester, Healthi Kids has teamed up with 50 neighborhood partners for its PlayROCs Your Neighborhood event.  

Healthi Kids hosts healthy play days. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 6. Healthi Kids and its community partners will unite to repurpose, reclaim and restore play to public spaces across Rochester. 

All children, families and residents in the Rochester area are encouraged to join Healthi Kids and its partners at any of the 50 pop-up locations across the city. Activities at each location will include kickball, jump ropes, water balloons, chalk and bubbles. 

“We’re excited to come together once again to advocate for the creation of policies, systems, environments and resources that improve the health and well-being of children in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region,” said Jenn Beideman, advocacy manager at Healthi Kids. “Every child deserves to live in a neighborhood where they can play and feel safe. By supporting the children of Rochester through the benefits of play, we’re working to improve their mental, physical, emotional and social health.”
