Lakeshore Foundation-NCHPAD Joins Let’s Move! Active Schools National Collaborative
Let’s Move! Active Schools – part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative – and Lakeshore Foundation-NCHPAD announced a new partnership that will create more Active Schools environments and increase physical education and physical activity opportunities for students across the country.
“As our mission is based on the fact that physical activity is essential for individuals with disability to lead healthy, active and independent lives, we are pleased to join the Let’s Move! Active Schools national collaborative to further the inclusion agenda. We are looking forward to seeing the influential outcomes of this partnership as we mobilize resources for social change in supporting inclusive physical education and physical activity environments.” – Jeff Underwood, President/CEO, Lakeshore Foundation
Lakeshore Foundation-NCHPAD joins 34 other leading health, education and private sector organizations as part of the Let’s Move! Active Schools national collaborative. These partners work together through the collective impact framework to help schools create Active School environments that provide children with at least 60 minutes of physical activity before, during and after the school day.
Specifically, Lakeshore Foundation-NCHPAD will support activities focused on inclusive physical education and physical activity environments.
