Be Active Kids seeks to raise community awareness of the importance of physical activity and play through our play initiatives, partnerships, social media, trainings, and resources. Be Active Kids works with local and state agencies to provide support, technical assistance, and information that parents and other members of the community can easily use to engage children in physical activity.
