#Commit2Ten with SPARK Programs!

Only 1 in 3 children is physically active each day. To spread the word about the lack of physical activity in schools—and across the country—the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is launching #Commit2Ten, a campaign challenging the nation to add 10 more minutes of physical activity a day.

Through #Commit2Ten, we invite individuals, families, schools, afterschool programs, companies, and communities to prove that a little more physical activity makes a big difference.
