March 4 Heroes Rec & Play Day – November 8

Celebrate our heroes, have fun, move, laugh and play at the Kent State Rec & Play Day on Fri., Nov. 8, 2019, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Beverly J. Warren Student Recreation & Wellness Center.

March 4 Heroes is a unique “play day” that celebrates our nation’s past and present veterans and members of the armed forces. The event helps raise funds for our local veteran services organizations by collecting donations and participating in various activities like spinning, rock climbing, archery, kinball, cornhole, JENGA, Connect Four, and more.

Sponsored by the Department of Recreational Services and Employee Wellness, this event is FREE and open to all Kent State faculty and staff and the local community. All attendees will have a chance to enter to win prizes. Light refreshments will also be available.

So that we know how many guests to expect, please register to attend. You may also make a voluntary donation, from our information page or at the event, if you choose.  All funds raised will go to Freedom House of Kent, which provides emergency shelter for veterans of Portage County.

For questions, feel free to reach out to Beth Michel at ext. 2-4732 or the Employee Wellness Office at. 2-0392 or
