PLAY BRIGADE INC

MORE FUN FOR EVERYONE!

Creating a world for all individuals where there are no barriers to play, recreation, or sports, and where inclusion is the cornerstone of community.

When Boston-area parents Dawn and Justin Oates realized their local playground was not equipped so their mobility-impaired daughter Harper could play alongside her siblings, they had a vision of creating a world for all individuals where there are no barriers to play, recreation, sports, and where inclusion is the cornerstone of community.

From that vision, The Play Brigade was born to educate people about the importance of play, regardless of age or ability; provide inclusive sports and recreation opportunities to communities and organizations; and develop programming that brings both together. 

The Play Brigade is honored to have the support of John Hancock Financial and partnerships with The National Inclusion Project (co-founded by entertainer Clay Aiken), the City of Boston Parks & Recreation Department, the Town of Brookline Division of Parks and Open Space, and the Boston Red Sox. 

The Play Brigade's initial goal is to raise $1M+ toward inclusive play opportunities in the Greater Boston area (including but not limited to universally accessible playground construction). Planning for the first three playgrounds is underway and construction is planned to begin in late 2015.

Please consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation to this important cause, and you will see how your contribution directly impacts the community in a way that is both tangible and vital.
