For a fourth year in a row, Active Schools and Athletes for Hope have teamed up to place shining examples of “active and healthy” in area schools. Through the program, local professional athletes and/or Olympians visit school assemblies, classes, parent nights, and other special events to speak with students about why active kids perform better in school and how to establish a lifetime of physical activity. The athletes also demonstrate fun ways to move and share personal experiences with the students. Want your school to be considered? Simply complete the athlete request form.
