“We feel fortunate to partner with the Friends of Hank Aaron State Trail and Milwaukee Public Schools in drawing attention to the huge benefits that come with getting outside and staying active as a family,” said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum.
Studies show that 65% of high school students do not meet recommended levels of physical activity, which is vital in reducing coronary heart disease, hypertension, colon cancer, and many more.
“We want to invite kids and their families to rediscover the joys of having fun outdoors,” said Melissa Cook, Hank Aaron State Trail Manager. “As Hank Aaron himself has stated, ‘We need to do everything we can to get kids outside and out from behind a TV screen.’”
In addition, every Sunday at the Harley-Davidson Museum is Family Day.
