Richard Simmons and New York City Council Member Tony Avella will host a press conference and good old-fashioned Pro PE Pep Rally on the steps of City Hall as they introduce City Council Resolution 1925/2009, calling on the 111th Congress to pass the FIT Kids Act, federal legislation that would improve the standards for physical education.
WHEN: Friday, June 19, 2009, 12:30PM
WHERE: Steps of City Hall, 2 Lafayette Street (at Chambers), New York, New York 10007

Attention, Teachers and Students:
Richard would love for you to make a sign or banner with your school name, so he can identify you!

Help Richard bring physical education back into our nation’s schools, and let’s make PE a Positive Experience for every child!
