The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) invites all of its stakeholders to join WADA in celebrating ‘Play True Day’ on 10 April along with fellow athletes, National and Regional Anti-Doping Organizations, Sports Federations, Major Event Organizers and other anti-doping stakeholders from around the world.
‘Play True Day’ is dedicated to clean sport and is intended to raise awareness among athletes, the sporting public and others about the global fight against doping. The inspiration for this initiative stems from a WADA-hosted Education Conference in 2013, which was attended by 17 South American countries that were the driving force behind 10 April being declared ‘Play True Day’. While it started as a small South American initiative, over the years, this grassroots movement has gained momentum with numerous organizations and countries from across the globe taking part.
In a spirit of solidarity among the anti-doping community, we invite you to join WADA and others by celebrating ‘Play True Day’ on your digital and social media platforms using one of the branded frames WADA has created especially for the day. Alternatively, you may wish to innovate and create your own Play True Day frame with a unique twist based on your specific sport or country. We also invite you all to use the hashtag #PlayTrueDay both in the leadup to and on the day in order to maximize the impact of the event on social media.
Also, should you have any queries or events/videos etc. that you would like to promote, please visit the Play True Day Website.
