2019 Move2Learn Summit
For the 3rd year, RunningBrooke brings world-recognized experts to speak on the direct benefits and proven science of regular physical activity before, during and after school. Throughout the school day physical activity positively affects students and their brain function, heightening learning, increasing on-task behavior, building classroom cohesion and reducing ADHD, depression and obesity.

Join us on January 10th from 4-7pm at TC Williams High School in Alexandria for an afternoon of fun and informative learning, and leave with ideas and tools to implement immediately.
