Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day is an annual celebration of her life and a global call challenging everyone to “Play Unified to Live Unified” because Mrs. Shriver taught us that on the playing field, we forget about our differences and recognize our mutual humanity. On EKS Day, which is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of each September, we invite you to join us in playing unified and teaching the world to live unified. We are demonstrating Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s enduring vision by calling upon athletes, families and friends to come together in a day of inclusive sport and play.
EKS Day is an opportunity to celebrate the impact that one dedicated individual can have on the world. Become an agent of acceptance and action throughout the world. Embrace the spirit of Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day and “Play Unified to Live Unified.” Visit www.eunicekennedyshriver.org to learn about the life and impact of Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
