The research is in and it’s no surprise: Physical activity throughout the day helps kids better focus on their school work. Movement builds more than muscles; it primes the brain so it’s ready, willing, and able to learn. Experts also see lower incidences of ADHD, depression, and obesity when kids get the exercise they need.
Sadly, too many children in underserved communities throughout Alexandria are at an increased risk of falling behind due to a lack of access and resources.
That’s why we at RunningBrooke developed our innovative Move2Learn programs for in the classroom and at home. Our goal is to spark happier, healthier, learning-ready students!
