City of Toronto to launch Ready, Set, PLAY
The City of Toronto is launching a new physical literacy program that will roll out in September. Parks, Forestry and Recreation staff will be joined by Paul Rosen, Paralympic gold medal winner, Dwight Drummond of CBC Television, who will MC the event, along with children from local City of Toronto summer camps, the Raptors mascot, and Tio the Moose, Toronto’s City of Sport mascot, to launch Ready, Set, PLAY!

Date: Thursday, August 25
Time: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Location: Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W. (podium green roof)

Physical literacy programs aim to help children enjoy being physically active by helping them master fundamental movement and sport skills. Starting in September, Ready, Set, PLAY! will be available in more than 80 community recreation centres across Toronto.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities.
