KEEN is bringing recess back–encouraging people of all ages to take a break from their desks and computers and get outdoors for a break, regularly. The Portland-based company is doing this through its Recess Revolution tour, which will kick off at Director Park in PDX this Friday, May 27th from 11 to 3 in the afternoon.
The Recess Revolution will encourage recess by setting up dozens of tether ball stations for people to play at. The tour will also give visitors the opportunity to take a minute at Recess Pledge Stations to commit to taking short outdoor breaks throughout their working days. For a bit of added inspiration, people who take the recess pledge will receive a pair of KEEN shoes, socks or gear.
KEEN hopes that by brining recess back, people will be moved to re-connect with the outdoors and spend more time in the natural world. The tour will move across the country throughout the summer months, making its way from Portland to San Francisco, Minneapolis, Denver and D.C. To learn more about the Recess Revolution Tour.
