Active for Life


Greetings <<First name>>

The new year is a time to reflect and readjust and that’s why going into 2019, we’re making some changes at Active for Life.

Research shows that the early years build the underlying brain structures that shape children’s lifetime habits. Given that physical activity makes for better physical, emotional, and cognitive development, it’s essential to help kids fall in love with moving before their fifth birthday. That’s why our goal in 2019 is to focus on giving parents everything they need to help their little ones “thrive by five” with physical literacy. It can be overwhelming to raise active kids in today’s world, so Active for Life’s ongoing mission is to make it simple and fun.
