A virtual challenge that keeps kids, adults, families, corporate teams - really anyone! - connected, active, and having fun while helping millions of children around the world, including right here in Canada. All while practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Have your friends and family sponsor you to complete each challenge and earn points along the way to win one of the top prizes.

COVID-19 has affected us all. But its impacts on us are not equal.
Here in Canada, COVID-19 will have disproportionate impacts on children and families in Indigenous communities who experience limited access to health services and mental health programs compared to their non-Indigenous peers. The social isolation caused by COVID-19 will only deepen mental health and well-being impacts to Indigenous children and youth.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE CAN CHANGE THIS.
For 10 years, Right To Play has partnered with Indigenous communities and organizations across Canada to support programs that focus on mental well-being, self-care, healthy coping strategies and life-skill development. During the pandemic, we continue to support over 85 partners with virtual trainings and activities that can be played by children, youth and families in their homes. Many of our Community Mentors have been designated essential workers because of the critical role they play in support of child and youth health and well-being. This means it is vital to continue supporting these local programs.
We need to support children now so they can help their communities recover and rebuild stronger than ever in the future. Right To Play has the expertise, the partnerships, and the teams to make that happen.
Your support will help us keep children safe and healthy, learning, and mentally resilient.
