What We Do
RunningBrooke is THE organization that gets kids moving to spark academic learning in the classroom. How?
Community and Move2Learn Grants
We challenge organizations to combine movement and learning into their plans and curriculum. We then accept applications from community nonprofits, teachers, and extracurricular organizations and discuss the goals and plans behind each application. Grants are awarded to those programs that have a compelling plan to add exercise or movement to their educational programs, engaging Alexandria’s kids and their families.
Education and Collaboration
We conduct Move2Learn educational summits and other events to inform teachers, administrators, and community leaders about why getting kids moving sparks learning. Additionally, we partner with Alexandria’s public schools to provide movement and physical activity for our kids.
Move2Learn is our initiative to give back to the community, where we have organized and facilitated playground renovation builds in underserved neighborhoods, giving families and children safe places to socialize, exercise, and prepare them for better learning.
