Our Mission

RunningBrooke is dedicated to getting Alexandria’s children physically active to spark happier, healthier, learning-ready students.

RunningBrooke’s mission is for every child in every school and underserved neighborhood in Alexandria to reap the broad benefits of being physically active. Backed by science and prioritized by the Alexandria City School Board and School Superintendent, RunningBrooke’s innovative Move2Learn program encompasses four areas: funding for before, during, and after school programs; Move2Learn Toolkits and Teacher Trainings; Move2Learn Educational Summits; and neighborhood-changing community playgrounds. This plan of action ensures tens of thousands of children reap the emotional, physical, and academic benefits of being physically active.
