This is the 15th Get Up and Go Day hosted by WPT. Then called "Kid Central, the first event was held on August 1, 1997 to launch WPT's Ready to Learn project. The special guests were Arthur and Lamb Chop of Lamb Chop's Play-Along, and about 100 people attended. The event has grown exponentially since then, and last year's Get Up and Go Day was attended by more than 2,000 people! The photo shows the crew for the first event- These days it takes more than 150 staff, volunteers and partners to make Get Up & Go happen! We hope to see you there!
