Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Atlanta Braves and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to bring charity activities to SunTrust Park

The Atlanta Braves has announced a multi-year relationship with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to bring baseball-themed activities to SunTrust Park for the Braves’s youngest fans.

SunTrust Park will feature ‘Hope and Will’s Sandlot,’ a large, kid-friendly area hosted by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, that will have the first-ever zip line and climbing tower inside a professional sporting venue. Visitors will be able to use the new Braves app to reserve a timeslot to access both of these attractions.

There also will be a batting cage and a variety of other interactive games, in addition to kid-friendly food and merchandise. The Braves and Children’s will be bringing back a long-time tradition, and crowd-pleasing favorite for Braves families – kids running the bases after Sunday games.

“Braves games have always been a fantastic family outing and SunTrust Park will feature an even larger space for baseball-themed, kids’ activities thanks to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,” said Derek Schiller, Braves president, business. “We are proud to continue our relationship with Children’s and are honored to help support their wonderful mission.”

“We are excited to continue our relationship with the Braves and to be a part of a new experience for families in Atlanta,” added Donna Hyland, president and CEO, Children’s.

“Children’s and the Braves want to make a difference in the lives of families, making sure kids get to do what they do best – be kids. Serving others is a team effort and privilege. Children’s and the Braves strive to bring about positive change and good health for generations of kids to come.”

The Braves will continue to host the annual Georgia/Georgia Tech game at SunTrust Park, which this year takes place on May 9. The game also raises money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

On Saturday, April 8, 2017, University of Georgia baseball will play Missouri in the first event open to the general public in SunTrust Park, to raise money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
