Exercise Their Minds

Protect Physical Education

The benefits of physical education (PE) ring clear as a school bell. With PE, we can keep kids’ hearts healthy and their minds in gear to do their best at school. The fact is, active kids learn better. And the benefits don’t end there. Physical education has positive impacts on their physical, mental, and emotional health.

Yet competing priorities are making effective PE programs less and less common. But with your help, we can change that.

Organizations are partnering to support the #ExerciseTheirMinds campaign. Over the next month we will be working together to support a national call for support for PE! The campaign has two goals:

  1. to promote a national conversation about PE, and
  2. to build a larger network of engaged advocates ready to support policy change in their communities.

We will educate, engage and activate parents and other potential advocates about the importance of PE with weekly calls-to-action. The best place to get involved is through your social media accounts. Follow the hashtag #ExerciseTheirMinds to get involved in our weekly calls-to-action! What can you do now? Sign the PEtition!
