We are calling on all professional, Olympic and college AFH member athletes to join us for Athletes for Active Schools Week (September 24-28), a joint initiative between Athletes for Hope and Active Schools, to encourage families to be physically active together at school, home and in the community. This year, we are encouraging parents and children to become more active in working together to make physical activity a priority. AFH athletes will help deliver this message during the week of September 24th.
You can engage with Athletes for Active Schools Week in the following ways:
- In-person School Visit: Visit a school in your local area and inspire kids to get moving! If you are interested, let us know where you will be (city/state) during the week of September 24th. We can still arrange a school visit during a different week if it works better with your schedule.
- Show us your Best Move: Record a short video (60 seconds or less) that shows your best move. It can be a sports move, a dance move or something you do in training. Upload it to Twitter or Instagram with #MyBestMove and challenge your followers to do the same. Kids from all over the country will be sharing their best moves in PE class, so keep an eye out for some fun videos during the month using the #MyBestMove hashtag.
This campaign depends on you! Help us make physical activity a priority and keep our kids on the path to becoming healthier adults. Please contact us if you would like to participate!
