Playworks brings out the best in every kid, through play.

Playworks was founded in 1996 and launched operations in Pennsylvania in 2010. For over 20 years, Playworks has given kids foundational skills for success in the classroom, the workplace and in civil society. 

We believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. Playworks PA creates a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills.

Funds raised through Playworks PA 5K will help ensure that over 14,000 kids in 27 Philadelphia elementary schools during the 2019-2020 school year learn vital social/emotional skills to succeed in school and in life.
