OUR MISSION
William E. Euille, City of Alexandria Mayor
Brooke Sydnor Curran is the kind of citizen that every community needs and wishes it had more of — a tireless, passionate individual that dedicates not only her time but also money to improving outcomes for the most vulnerable in our City — our children. It's organizations like RunningBrooke, that ensure that the neediest children have access to early childhood education, educational opportunities, and safe and stimulating outdoor play that they deserve to become successful and healthy citizens. RunningBooke has been running and running and running on behalf of the City of Alexandria. As the city's Mayor, I am thankful for her help and pleased to officially bestow on to her the title "Official Ambassador to the City of Alexandria".
John Porter, President/CEO of ACT for Alexandria
RunningBrooke—What a great concept and a wonderful way to help others in our community. In addition to providing a creative and visible means for fundraising—the funds from which go back into the community, the additional aspect of promoting nutrition, exercise and conditioning serve to provide a multi-pronged message to others. I can’t go anywhere in town and speak about ACT without someone acknowledging RunningBrooke and the tremendous impact it has had on our community, particularly with the focus on kids, kids health and their development.
