This week we are partnering with Active Schools, an organization whose mission is to increase the level of physical activity in children. In the United States, two-thirds of all kids aren’t moving enough. Our friends at Active Schools are trying to change that by making physical activity in schools a priority. AFH member athletes are hitting the streets and taking to social media week to show their support for physical education in public schools. Professional, Olympic and college athletes are working with PE teachers to share how they exercise and explain a little about their sport to elementary school aged kids.
We know not all athletes are able to make the trek out in person to schools this week, so we created an opportunity for to raise awareness of the importance of physical education in public schools right from home or the gym.
