    Joy of Sports Joins Collaboration to Landscape the ‘State of Play’ in Derry Township

    Derry Township Better Together has partnered with the Aspen Institute Sports & Society Program’s Project Play to undertake an inventory and analysis of our community’s recreation options to determine how well stakeholders are serving the physical activity needs of residents and to chart a path forward for how interested parties can work together to grow access to quality recreation opportunities for all township residents.  DTBT is a coalition consisting of leaders from the township and school district, as well as from health care, social service, faith-based, civic, and recreational sports organizations, and is supported by a facilitator from the Penn State College of Medicine, whose mission is to promote improved health and quality of life in Derry Township.  To read a one-page description of the project, please click here.

    “We expect the strategies and ideas produced through this project to inspire organizations and individuals to take meaningful actions to get citizens moving and to keep them moving,” related Terry Singer, founder & Chairman of the Joy of Sports Foundation and a founding member of BTDT.  JSF will be the non-profit partner working directly with the Aspen Institute on behalf of BTDT.  The initial phase of the project will commence on December 9th and continue through March 31, 2020.  If you are interested in learning more about the project please contact Terry Singer at info@joyofsportsfoundation.org.
