Champions of Play, 8.26.19

Calling all Portland metro area K-5 Physical Education classrooms!

We believe in the importance of play, as well as the health and wellness for our elementary school students. Unfortunately, many local P.E. programs are severely lacking in equipment for children to play and thrive.   

Thanks to the support of Allstate, Champions of Play will support quality physical education for our next generation of leaders by providing over $12,000 of physical education equipment to 10 local schools this school year, dispersed into a Fall and Spring cycle. 

During the fall cycle, grants of $1,250 worth of equipment will be awarded to five different PE programs in Portland-Metro area elementary schools! We will provide details for the spring cycle of the 2019-2020 school year in January 2020.

The equipment will be delivered to each selected school with a PTFC assembly to showcase the importance of play and provide youth with the tools they need to live healthy and active lives.

If you know of or work in a local school with a physical education program in need, apply today! Application deadline is Wednesday, September 25, 2019. Please send completed applications to Laura Bonds at If selected, a PTFC staff member will reach out!
