Pat Rumbaugh, known as The Play Lady inspires everyone to play. In 2009 Pat founded a play committee to plan play events for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. This idea has led to the development of the nonprofit www.Letsplayamerica.org. Over 100 play events: play days, streets closed to play and joining other events has occurred. The Clemson University Director for the Youth Learning Institute called Pat’s 2018 National Youth Development Award, the Heisman Trophy of Play. Pat writes a quarterly column for the “Play and Playground Magazine.” Pat also speaks regularly at conferences.
