The Coca-Cola Foundation strives to make a unique and sustainable difference in the area of active healthy living especially for children and young people. Funding for a new KOMPAN ICON electronic playground might just be the thing to help combat obesity in some of BC’s urban communities. By combining the joys of outdoor play with the immersion of video games, ICON brings together two central elements of children’s modern need for play. Take a video of kids playing in the park and that just might be the new Coke commercial!
