The Calgary Flames Foundation is on the lookout for all of the creative ways that families and kids in southern Alberta find ways to play.
The We Play Here campaign is encouraging young people to demonstrate how they remain active, whether by taking part in the sport, school and play programs funded by the foundation, or any other activities that suit their interest.
While there is no shortage of research available highlighting all the mental and physical benefits of being active, it’s also a way for families to bond.
Flames defenceman Michael Stone, who has three children, says during the summer, his family gardens together and spends time playing basketball and street hockey on their Springbank property.
The foundation is also promoting the campaign on social media by asking people to share a photo of what play means to them, tag the Calgary Flames social media accounts and use the hashtag #WePlayHere.
Anyone who participates will be entered into a contest for a chance to win tickets to an upcoming Flames game and autographed team jerseys.
