WASHINGTON (March 28th, 2016)
Fun Academy announced today that it will contribute to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks. It will support the 2016 White House Easter Egg Roll at President’s Park on the South Lawn of the White House.
2016 White House Easter Egg Roll
Honoring the final Easter Egg Roll of the Obama Administration, this year’s theme is “Let’s Celebrate.” The event will feature live music, sport courts, cooking stations, storytelling, Easter egg rolling, and the first- ever White House Fun Run. Furthermore, the official White House Easter Eggs are sold by the National Park Foundation to support the annual event. The event will take place at one of more than 400 national parks across the country. White House Easter Eggs are available at easter.nationalparks.org.
Fun Academy is proud to support the National Park Foundation. Our Angry Birds Playground early years education concept is based on the philosophy of Fun Learning. Thus, it encourages kids to experience the great outdoors, a learning experience which fits perfectly with this concept. Moreover, we are also very happy that our first Angry Birds Playground customer in America, St. Paul City School from Minnesota, is with us today for the Easter Egg Roll event.
Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque
The White House Easter Egg Roll is a great example of the countless ways there are to #FindYourPark and encourage every kid to experience the great outdoors. Launched in March 2015, Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque is a public awareness and education movement. It inspires people from all backgrounds to connect with, celebrate, and support America’s national parks and community-based programs. #FindYourPark celebrates the National Park Service Centennial and sets the stage for the Service’s next 100 years. Furthermore, it also complements the President’s Every Kid in a Park initiative. More importantly, it encourages people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation’s natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.
