Kickball Classic: Supporting Active Students

July 21, 2014

Register now for this exciting summer fundraiser

Make an impact while reliving your favorite childhood game: kickball!

Grab your friends, lace up those sneakers and join us for a fun day of kickball while supporting healthy, active students in Chicago. Proceeds benefit Healthy Schools Campaign’s work to ensure all children have the chance to enjoy physical activity and play at school.

HSC believes in the common-sense notion that healthy students are better learners. Students who are physically active during the school day experience fewer behavioral problems at school and are more focused and engaged in the classroom.

We work on the ground in Chicago to promote physical activity and play as part of the school day. We advocate for policies that support health and wellness in schools, including more time for PE and recess for Chicago students.

We need your help to continue our work. Proceeds support Healthy Schools Campaign’s work promoting physical activity and play for Chicago’s students.
