Save the Dates – Spring2Action and Move2Learn Summit

Spring2Action and Move2Learn

RunningBrooke will be participating in and hosting two events this Spring that have become traditions in support of our Move2Learn program.

Wednesday, April 5th is Alexandria’s Annual Spring2Action

It’s that incredible day of year when ACT for Alexandria brings our community together to support and help grow organizations and non-profits and shine a light on all the good work they do. As a longtime S2A participant, RunningBrooke funds and actively engages in creating the resources and spaces for at-risk kids to move, sparking their learning for success in school and life.  Watch for our emails and read the stories of our past work and our exciting new plans for 2017.  We encourage you not just to donate, but to volunteer and join us in our mission.

Wednesday, June 7th 8:00AM-10:00AM is the RunningBrooke Move2Learn Summit

Charlene Burgeson of Let’s Move! Active Schools will be our main speaker.  She was part of former First Lady Michelle Obama’s team who rolled out the Active School initiative that is now in over 22,000 schools, serving over 12 million children.  “An Active School incorporates physical activity before, during, and after school for at least 60 minutes a day.”  The morning will include a panel discussion with local teachers, programs leaders and administrators from the Alexandria Public School System and beyond.
