After-School All-Stars and Nationwide Children’s Hospital Celebrate in Global Day of Play

October 4, 2013

COLUMBUS, OH – October 5, 2013 from 10:00am-4:00pm After-School All-Stars students from Moler Elementary will participate in the Global Day of Play at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

 

Hundreds of volunteers and organizations around the world have already signed up to host and promote Global Cardboard Challenge , which was inspired by YouTube sensation, Cain’s Arcade. Boyle Heights, the East Los Angeles neighborhood where Caine’s Arcade is located, will serve as Global Cardboard Challenge Day headquarters, connecting to events in South America, Africa, Europe, Asia/Pacific and the Middle East as well as a continually growing number of events across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

 

After-School All-Stars Ohio and Nationwide Children’s Hospital believe in providing students with opportunities that meet their individual passions and using a hands on approach to learning. Kindergarten through 8th grade students are encouraged to come out for this cardboard challenge and create whatever their imagination will allow.

 

In addition to fun activities that celebrate the creativity and imagination of kids around the world, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will be conducting well child visits. The health care provider will record the child’s height, weight, and other important information. Hearing, vision, and other tests will be part of some visits. Preventive care is important to keep children healthy. The ongoing partnership between After-School All-Stars Ohio and Nationwide Children’s Hospital benefits each child, their guardian and the schools they attend.
