The benefits of physical education ring clear as a school bell. With daily 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. With your help, we can change that. In April, the Voices for Healthy Kids team is launching a campaign to start a national conversation about PE and why it is so critical for all kids themed, “Exercise their Minds. Protect PE,” and they need your help.
As a Voices for Healthy Kids PE action team member, you’ll be kept up-to-date on campaigns in your community and around the country in support of PE, and be provided with opportunities to get involved. Join today at www.voicesforhealthykids.org/PE and help us start the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #ProtectPE.
Voices for Healthy Kids is dedicated to ensuring that physical education is provided to all of our kids. It’s not only good for their health, it’s good for their minds. And that’s good for all of us.
