As a parent of a child in high school, I am extremely excited to introduce you to Dr Pepper Snapple Group’s Let’s Play initiative, which provides kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority. That’s such a great initiative to help the current generation to get moving!
You know, it needs to start at home: my son loves basketball, so we hired a private coach to help develop his skills and keep him active in the summer!
We also bought nets for our town basketball court, to help local kids to utilize it more often!
I love that this is amplified by the Let’s Play High School Makeover Challenge, which will award one lucky school with $100,000 in brand-new athletic equipment. Student-athletes from all over the country submitted videos explaining what sports means to their school to enter the contest.
The top 20 submissions have been selected, and one is right here in Philly, The Northeast High School, so I want to encourage you to vote to determine the top 10 finalists.
The voting period runs from September 8-17, 2017 that will result in a top 10. Voting is open to the public and your votes will help determine the top 10 schools in the running to receive the equipment makeover. Dr Pepper Snapple Group and Good Sports will select the winning high school, which will receive $100,000 in new athletic equipment. Amazing, isn’t it?
You can vote by clicking HERE, and follow along with the contest using the hashtag #LetsPlayHSMakeover!
