Rescuing Recess - September 2007
Tipping off the nationwide celebration of “National Recess Week,” Cartoon Network today announced a major partnership with the National Basketball Association’s social responsibility arm, NBA Cares (www.nba.com/nba_cares), to help enlist one million volunteer hours to rescue recess across America. NBA Community Ambassador Bob Lanier was on hand in Washington D.C. for the announcement, which comes on the heels of a new report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, concluding that recess is the single best way to help kids be more physically active, but that it is in decline in schools primarily serving children from minority and low income families.
