Team Day Nursery needs your help

Day Nursery staff competing in the Indiana Sports Corp Corporate Challenge 2012We had so much fun last year, we’re going to do it again! Team Day Nursery will be competing again next month in the Indiana Sports Corp’s Corporate Challenge. The Corporate Challenge is a fun-filled community event that emphasizes healthy lifestyles and company camaraderie.  Leading up to the September 21 & 28 competition, Team Day Nursery will have a chance to earn points by participating in the Community & Compassion Events. One of the ways you can help us  earn team points is to donate sports equipment (trust us…we need all the help earning team points that we can get!!)

Indiana Sports Corp’s Geared For Health program collects and distributes donated sports equipment to help under served local young athletes have the equipment they need to jump start a more active lifestyle while encouraging a commitment to good health. The program collects new and gently-used donated sports equipment from manufacturers, retailers, institutions, events and individuals, and distributes it to not-for-profit, youth-serving organizations, sports leagues and sports clubs.

Geared For Health accepts:
– traditional sports gear (soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, football, lacrosse, hockey, tennis, golf, volleyball, boxing, wrestling, martial arts)
– yard games (badminton, croquet, bocce ball)
– playground and street sports equipment (rollerblades, roller skates, street hockey gear, Frisbees, jump ropes)
– water sports gear (masks, fins, kick boards, pool games, water guns)
