Taking Steps Together

Our “Taking Steps Together” celebration at Oronoco Bay Park

Movement, Music and Community (totally) matter! The weather was great, the band was rocking, kids (and adults) got active — it was a great day enjoyed by all.

Over the years, we’ve taken a lot of steps together to build community, and bring movement back to SPARK happier, healthier, and more learning-ready students across Alexandria. Thank you for joining and celebrating our collective steps!

A special thanks to honorary co-hosts Congressman Don Beyer and Megan Beyer, as well to Mayor Allison Silberberg and Champion Sponsor The LizLuke Team for your foundational support of the kids of RunningBrooke. Big thanks too to Six Half Dozen, Noise in the Basement, Old Town Smiles, Mind the Mat, Core Wellness, Simpson Development, INOVA Alexandria Hospital, The Shoe Hive / The Hive, Kiskadee, Rosemont Landscaping & Lawncare, and KWC.

Thanks too to Port City Brewing Company, Pork Barrel BBQ, and Hard Times Cafe Alexandria.

Keep being awesome,

Brooke (Founder and CEO of RunningBrooke)
