Can you believe it’s August already? School is going to be starting in just a few short weeks and with all the back-to-school promotions going on right now there’s one I’m proud to stand behind and be a part of.

The Sprite Spark Parks Project is a fantastic campaign where Sprite has set the goal to combat the disappearance of school sports programs and outdoor playgrounds by spending $2 million dollars in 2011 to refresh play areas nationwide. Isn’t that amazing!

Sprite Spark Parks

The program is working to construct, refurbish, and refresh, more than 150 neighborhood parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, and basketball courts. Sprite hopes to create active outdoor spaces where children, teens, and families will have a place to be physically active which in turn will inspire their imaginations while at school. The Sprite Spark Parks Project will create these clean, safe, and creative recreational spaces to last for years to come.

On top of all of that, My Coke Rewards members can enter for a chance to have their school’s outdoor space refreshed through a $25,000 grant! To submit your school simply visit the My Coke Rewards for Schools Program and enter the point codes found on Sprite and Sprite Zero products. If you’re not a member of My Coke Rewards yet, it’s easy to sign up, visit My Coke Rewards and follow the instructions for new user registration.
