Everybody needs physical activity for good health and inclusive after-school programs can help increase physical activity among children of all abilities. Girls on the Run, in collaboration with the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD), recently completed a pilot inclusion program aimed at involving girls with disabilities across the country in this physical activity-based positive youth development program.

America Walks has worked tirelessly to make sure all community members have safe, accessible, and enjoyable places to walk and be physically active. To recognize the community change agents working in this space across the United States, America Walks launched its Community Change Grant program in 2015. This program provides funds to catalyze smaller-scale, low-cost projects and programs that increase the prevalence of walking, expand the diversity of people and organizations working to advance walkability, and help to make walking safer, easier, and more fun for all community members.
