2 new supporters join the campaign!

The More Recess for Virginians campaign is proud to announce that the Virginia American Academy of Pediatrics and American Heart Association have agreed to be supporters of the campaign and the HB1419 bill.

The American Heart Association supports HB 1419 to increase daily physical activity through recess, and will continue to advocate for the nationally recommended 30 minutes of daily physical education for elementary students. According to the CDC, physical education improves student attendance, test scores, participation and enthusiasm for other academic subjects, motivation to learn, and reduces discipline referrals.
