Too many young people in King County – particularly in communities of color – face barriers to physical activity even in a region famous for outdoor recreation, a study conducted by the University of Washington’s Center for Leadership in Athletics in partnership with King County Parks and the Aspen Institute found. The King County Play Equity Coalition was established to implement the report's recommendations and includes local professional sports teams and community-based organizations.  Join us for a discussion with Julie McCleery and Bookie Gates as we learn about the coalition's work to increase rates of King County youth meeting the CDC's physical activity guidelines and ensure all youth have access to the social, emotional, academic, and physical benefits of movement through sports, play, and outdoor recreation.  Bookie Gates is a former WSU baseball player and chair of the King County Play Equity Coalition.  Julie McCleery is the Director of Research-Practice Partnerships at the UW Center for Leadership.in Athletics.
