Mark your calendars for the fun and philanthropic Tracky Dack Day, happening annually on May 25! Originating in Australia, this beloved event encourages people to swap their ordinary pants for comfortable 'tracky dacks' (the Australian term for track pants or sweatpants) all to raise funds for vital children's hospital programs. This comfy and colorful tradition dates back to 1995 when it was launched by the TLC for Kids charity, turning loungewear into a powerful symbol of community support. Kicking off winter in the most snugly possible way, Tracky Dack Day is not just about feeling comfortable in your favorite pair of sweats, it's about making a difference and having a little fun while you're at it! So, get ready to pull on your most cherished tracky dacks, feel good, and do good this May 25.
