Take a break from work, sweat a little, and enjoy a frozen treat on the Greenway tomorrow with Yasso. The frozen Greek yogurt brand, best known for dishing out healthier-for-you bars and pints, is celebrating the launch of its non-profit organization, the Game On! Foundation.

The non-profit is an extension of co-founders and co-CEOs Drew Harrington and Amanda Klane’s mission to give back to communities and inspire everyone to be a little more active. They will use the Yasso tour trucks (think glammed up ice cream trucks) throughout New England this summer to build new programs, offer samples, and inspire corporate employees to get out of the office for some movement.

The Quincy-based company will hold a free inaugural event, Game Day on the Greenway, tomorrow, June 22, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Rowes Wharf Plaza at the intersection of Atlantic and High Street. The day will serve as an adult recess, giving office workers (or really, anyone) the opportunity to get outside in the sunshine and partake in some friendly competition.

The day will include a three lane bungee run, quarterback tosses, and more. Plus, free samples of Yasso’s frozen greek yogurt will be offered as well as prizes for participants. The healthier frozen treat will be back, though, if you can’t break away tomorrow. On June 20, July 13, and August 24, Dewey Square Sampling Days will take place from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., and the company is a supporting sponsor of the Greenway fitness program and will be sampling at select events throughout the summer.

“Game On! is our way of sharing our passion for health and wellness with the hope of helping others,” Klane said in a press release. “We believe just one day of hustle and teamwork can inspire people of all ages to tackle their personal goals. It’s been critical to our success and we want to provide others with the same opportunity and encouragement. What better place to issue that challenge than in the heart of Boston?”

Free, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Boston Rowes Wharf Plaza at the intersection of Atlantic and High St.,
