We totally agree!
Eli Manning is taking some time during his busy schedule to help out with Build Our Kids Success, a new initiative that combines academics AND healthy kids by utilizing a new "before-school" program!
The goal is to get kids moving BEFORE school, as it both helps with their fitness and stimulates their minds for a day of learning!
Here's what Eli said about it:
"You get the kids before school, you get them running around — relays, races. The idea is obviously it helps with their physical activity and their overall health, but also they found out when you are active, when kids are active, their minds become active. So the goal is also to get them to do better in the class room as well."
Sounds like a fab idea to us!
We hope it takes off!
