Save the Dates – Spring2Action and Move2Learn Summit

Spring2Action and Move2Learn

April 5th was RunningBrooke’s most successful Spring2ACTion Fundraiser Yet!

You Can't Buy Community; But You Can Build It

Wow! We are overwhelmed by the support you all showed during Spring2ACTion 2017. You volunteered, donated, spread the word on social media, and attended our #Block2BEon party in Del Ray. It was inspiring to see so many people and businesses in our community come together for Alexandria’s kids!

All of your contributions added up: this was our best Spring2ACTion ever!

Your donations will allow this work to happen in 2017:

  • Playground court renovation in “play desert” of Alexandria where thousands of kids literally don’t have a safe place to get outside, socialize and be active
  • An Educational Summit where we’ll empower educators and community leaders and give key concepts and tools to serve their youth in a stronger way
  • Organize and fund local community partners and extra curricular organizations to combine movement and learning into their plans and curriculum

Because of you, we are well on our way to helping 10,000 underserved kids in Alexandria get more active and achieve greater academic success.

From the kids, and all of us at RunningBrooke, THANK YOU!

Best,

Brooke

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.
