Be a Part of Something Bigger with Playtex Play On Canada!

We all have been there or know someone that couldn’t afford sports growing up. It’s a stinging feeling. You want to play, but the money just isn’t there. Maybe the school doesn’t have the funds it needs to buy the equipment. However, you know the talent is there. This is why I love Playtex Play On Canada and how they empower young women!

Having a daughter who is an unstoppable force and super athletic, playing sports is just something that is a no-brainer. She loves it and I couldn’t imagine not being able to allow her to realize her dreams because we couldn’t afford it.

Last year, we had the chance to try out some Playtex products and share all about the Play On™ contest. The contest celebrated young women and they were able to show their passions and show the world how they played on!

What is this program?

Any program that encourages and empowers young women is a program that I can fully support. This is one of my favourite programs, so I’m excited to tell you all about it. In August of 2016, Playtex Sport decided to launch a program (Playtex Play On Canada).

The Playtex Play On™ Canada Grant Program is designed to allow girl high school sports teams to apply for grants up to $5,000. Everyone is lucky because there is $50,000 available, which means plenty of girls are going to get everything they need to play the sports they love!

When were the recipients announced?

On February 15th, the recipients for the Playtex Play On Canada Grants were announced. These teams come from all over Canada and from every sport imaginable like swimming, soccer, basketball, weightlifting, rugby, wrestling, field hockey, curling and volleyball. These teams come from all over Canada, from Campbell River, BC to Summerside, PEI.

Grant applicants requested all different types of items to help their teams Play On but the most requested items were new uniforms and gear.

A fun part of the announcements was when Erica Wiebe surprised one of the grant recipients. She was so positive and it was a great way to break the news to one of the grant recipients. As you can see from the video above, they were so excited about their new gear!
