The Sandbox Project travelled to Windsor Ontario last week to participate in the 2013 International Children’s Games
In an effort to raise awareness of the importance and power of collaboration in tackling child and youth health issues, The Sandbox Project is brought its signature event, “The World’s Largest Sandbox” to The International Children’s Games on August 16th! While The World’s Largest Sandbox is held annually in Ottawa each June to raise the awareness of child and youth health issues with public officials, this event focused on our not-for-profit partners and families from the Windsor-Essex community. Joining The Sandbox Project in the Sandbox was AllerGen NCE, Play Safe and Parachute – three of our great partners!
