RunningBrooke is the organization in Alexandria that gets kids active to improve focus and spark academic learning in the classroom. We are innovative and results driven, and since 2009, have served over 10,000 underserved children across Alexandria. Not only do we build and renovate community playgrounds, but also we pilot programs in City Schools, reinvest in other nonprofits with our Move2Learn Community Grants, and educate our educators with RunningBrooke’s yearly Move2Learn Summit.

What’s at stake?
We know that 2-out-of 3 of our kids don’t get the recommended daily activity of 60 minutes a day.

We know that the brain responds just like muscles do with exercise, growing with use and shrinking with inactivity.

We also know that 30% of our kids don’t pass their 3rd grade tests, an important indicator of future success, and that the most at risk are our underserved students, 36% of whom live below the poverty rate, and especially vulnerable to failure.

Think of this: Alexandria’s high school dropout rate is at 12%, and it is estimated that a 16 year-old unemployed dropout will cost taxpayers $258,000 over his/her lifetime and impose a social burden of $755,900.

While we have made great progress, there is so much left to do. RunningBrooke has big plans to expand its footprint in 2017 to get even more kids actively engaged and moving to fuel their academic learning in the classroom.

What can you do?
Team up with us to draw attention and steer critical funds to the often-overlooked intersection of physical activity, wellness and learning. Join us as a Corporate Partner to provide a future where all of Alexandria’s kids have realistic opportunities to succeed in school and life.

Can we count on you as a Corporate Partner in 2017? It’s only with your generous support that RunningBrooke can drive real-life change.
