How Do We Get Kids Moving More?

March 24, 2016

Being physically active every day has so many benefits for kids of all ages and in all communities.  It can reduce stress, improve mental well-being, and promote healthy weight in children and youth.  However, there are many obstacles that prevent or discourage kids, especially those who reside in low-income communities, to lead an active lifestyle.

The NAACP needs your help.  We ask that you join the #GetKidsActive conversation on social media and share with us your ideas on how we can support communities in making physical activity an everyday occurrence for all children and youth regardless of their zip code.

Follow us on Facebook or Tweet us at @NAACP using the hashtag #GetKidsActive and tell us your thoughts on how we can encourage more physical activity for all youth and children.
