PE4life, the nation's advocate for physical education programs, has partnered with two innovative programs — Action Based Learning (ABL) and Project Adventure (PA) — to improve the health and fitness of children across the country.

PE4life and ABL have agreed to educate the other to deliver trainings and share philosophies. As ABL is an innovative program that uses brain research findings to improve cognition in children, the two organizations will work together on increasing physical activity and brain development in children.

As agreed upon, PA will provide training, consulting, curriculum and equipment to PE4life Academy Training Centers and communities nationally. PA's proven methodology will provide physical educators and school leaders with strategies and tools to increase participation and enjoyment in physical education classes.

ABL and PA will be featured at the national 2009 PE4life Summit(R) June 19 in Bentonville, Arkansas. For more information about this event, visit
