Healthy Schools Campaign to Save Recess


Healthy Schools Campaign has a new campaign to make play part of the school day. Their two-day campaign to bring back recess is well underway! With the help of Groupon and The Point, HSC is helping individuals team up and make recess a reality for Chicago school children.

The non-profit Healthy Schools Campaign (HSC) has organized thousands of parents and caught the attention of top Chicago Public School officials in its quest to bring physical activity and fitness to area youngsters. HSC needs $40,000 to help CPS re-instate a recess period at 10 local schools. To find out about how you can help visit the Point.
