Last year with support from the Walmart Foundation, NRPA
helped local park and recreation agencies in 80 cities serve over 20 million
meals to children during the summer and before/after school in low-income
communities. While we celebrate this accomplishment, we know more work needs to
be done to close the hunger gap.
This month, the National Recreation and Park Association has joined the Alliance for a Healthier Generation (AHG) and the Clinton Foundation for the #GirlsAre Campaign. The goal: to raise awareness around the lack of physical activity among women and girls. This campaign is also being used to empower girls to celebrate their athleticism, in coordination with National Physical Fitness and Sports month.
