Breaking NEWS: RunningBrooke has YOUR guaranteed Marine Corps Marathon Bib! Run for a reason and put smiles in your miles… Fight childhood obesity and increase test scores for at-risk in Alexandria, VA.

Problem: 30% of Alexandria, VA’s 3rd graders don’t pass their reading SOL’s – a key litmus test for future success, and 44.5% of our 3 to 5-year olds are obese or overweight. Countless studies prove that physical activity literally builds the architecture of the brain and fuels learning, and gets kids healthier too!

Solution: Your sweat and fundraising will build playgrounds and fund innovative movement programs to level the playing field for at-risk Alexandria kids. ALL kids should have the tools necessary to succeed in school and life.  The photo above shows the project our 2015 RunningBrooke runners and donors funded – a new playground in the Hume Springs neighborhood of Alexandria.  The playground was transformed from a dismal, uninviting eyesore into a welcoming, engaging space with age-appropriate equipment.  Kids get exercise and neighbors gather to enjoy the outdoors.  A total game changer!

The Details:

  • $75 for your GUARANTEED 2016 Marine Corps Marathon bib.
  • $1000 fundraising pledge – 1st half due by August 1, 2016, 2nd half due by November 10, 2016.
  • All donations are 100% tax-deductible as allowed by law.
  • All donations to fund playgrounds, movement and exercise programs for at-risk Alexandria children.
