The Defender of Play 5K is a fun run fundraiser for the Homeless Children's Playtime Project, an organization whose mission is to nurture healthy child development and reduce the effects of trauma among children living in temporary housing programs in Washington D.C.
At Playtime, we believe every child has a right to play. We provide weekly activities, healthy snacks, and opportunities to play and learn for the children at emergency shelter and transitional housing sites across DC. In the past ten years, Playtime volunteers have served thousands of children. At most of the sites we serve, the Playtime Project is the only children’s program offered.
Playtime relies on a small staff and large group of volunteers, but we simply cannot make Playtime happen each and every week without the generous donations of people like you!
Please help us defend play and reach our fundraising goal of $20,000. Visit
