Longest Day of Play


 Longest Day of Play

Get Active & Win Great Prizes!
Are you a student in Kindergarten to Grade 8?
Take the Longest Day of Play Challenge!
Get 60 minutes of physical activity from May 28 – June 20! That’s one hour a day for 24 days!
Together we can create healthy habits! 40,000 students x 24 hours of activity = almost 1 million hours of physical activity! That’s 40,000 days or more than 100 years of exercise! Track your 60 minutes of daily physical activity (DPA) each day and collect pledges to win prizes! Pledges support students of the OCDSB via the Ottawa Senators Foundation and the Education Foundation of Ottawa.
Prizes will be awarded individually (based on how many pledges you collect) plus schools can win for most funds raised, most participation and most creative campaign event!
Did you know that 93% of children and youth are not meeting the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day?* Together, let's create healthy habits and change that!  




 Funds raised support students of the OCDSB through the EFO and OSF!

OCDSB logo
The OCDSB is a dynamic, creative learning organization that fosters the achievement, well-being and dignity of every student. As a global leader in public education, we believe in creating opportunities to support student well-being.
EFO is an independent, registered charity supporting students in the OCDSB by removing economic barriers to successful learning. We invest in student’s well-being by providing necessities such as food, clothing and medication as well as funding opportunities in athletics, arts and extracurricular activities for students who otherwise would not be able to participate.  
The Ottawa Senators Foundation empowers children and youth to reach their full potential by investing in social recreation and education programs that promote both physical and mental wellness.
