Subaru Kids Obstacle Challenge Gives Back To Local Parks And Encourages Families To Get Outdoors
Subaru Kids Obstacle Challenge Provides Local Parks in the Bay Area with Play Equipment
In addition to participating in Outdoor Playday, families are encouraged to share their activities on social media using #KOCOutdoorPlayday, to educate other families about the initiative and encourage them to get outside. Kids Obstacle Challenge also encourages the use of the hashtag to share how families spend outdoor time together to help inspire new ways of family bonding.
"Through this initiative, we aim to reduce screen time and inspire families to connect with one another and the outdoors," said Brooke Jackson, Managing Director of Kids Obstacle Challenge. "We look forward to encouraging kids and their families to be more active and adventurous, not just at our events but throughout the year."
The Subaru Kids Obstacle Challenge event series – which will host its Bay Area event on September 15-16 at Coyote Point Recreation Area in San Mateo, CA – will continue to emphasize the importance of family bonding and outdoor activity with events in cities across the nation. Events offer kids ages 5-16 and their parents (who run for free!) and opportunity to challenge themselves and get muddy together as they tackle a 1.5-2 miles obstacle course with 13-15 obstacles!
