It’s been a year of firsts for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles!

Play L.A. took place on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and it brought together the local sports community for an ultimate “play day,” while promoting healthy and active lifestyles.

The day kicked off with a Family Fest that was filled with games, activities, music from the School of Rock and food trucks!

The youth-only sports clinic sessions took place on the field and featured an all-star lineup that included:

Hockey

Los Angeles Kings, Daryl Evans, Jim Fox and Jaroslav Modry
