Several years ago, Pat Rumbaugh was nicknamed “The Play Lady.”
And the nickname stuck.
After spending 25 years getting young people to play through her work as a PE teacher and tennis coach, she co-founded Let’s Play America and took on the task of encouraging people of ALL ages across the nation to prioritize play.
We’ll be talking about why play matters and how we can do a better job of setting aside time to play every day.
In her TEDx Talk, Saving Play- One Playful Step at a Time, Pat not only shared her important message, but she delivered part of it while hula-hooping! Pat is clearly playfully passionate, and she has an important message to share today.
