JOIN US IN CELEBRATING WALK & ROLL FOR OUR HeARTS MONTH THIS FEBRUARY!
We may not be walking or rolling to school right now, but physical activity is even more essential to health during these challenging times! This February, we challenge you to get outside, explore your neighborhoods, and stretch your artistic muscles by drawing about what you LOVE about Walking & Rolling, for a chance to win a $50.00 gift card to a local Art Supply store and/or be featured in a printed "Walk & Roll for Our HeARTS" calendar!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN WALK & ROLL FOR OUR HeARTS MONTH
