Just Play Brings Fun to Cruz Bay

Just Play signage

Hundreds of kids descended onto Winston Wells Field Monday morning to take part in the fifth annual Just Play event. The event, organized by Dean Dowling, founder of Using Sport for Social Change, was geared toward children ages five through 17 and featured a variety of activities including basketball, tennis, conga lines and more.

We took a quick video of some of yesterday’s fun. Check it out below:

This year’s festivities kicked off Saturday night with a fundraising event over at The Beach Bar. Inner Visions played the event and a good amount of money was raised to help the kids. While on island, Dean will also provide one backpack filled with school supplies to each child attending Julius E. Sprauve School. He is doing so in conjunction with the Global Backpack Project.
