The Sports Backers have established the “Active RVA” certification and awards program to recognize the region’s exceptional employers and schools that are implementing innovative programs to promote physical activity. The organizations and schools that are Active RVA Certified serve as role models in the community.
Once your company or school has been certified, you will be qualified to be in our PULSE e-newsletter, blogs, and in weekly posts on Facebook and Twitter. Your achievement will be recognized at a ceremony that will take place once a year at the Annual Scorecard luncheon where you receive your official plaque commemorating your achievement. Our goal is to give those schools and companies that are doing the best job of encouraging physically active lifestyles recognition in the community. Follow this link to see the employers and schools that have earned Active RVA Certification for 2013.
Applying is easy, just follow the links below and fill out the online survey. Our staff will follow up to verify the information and ultimately grade your Active RVA status.
