Innovators in delivering great physical-activity experiences

ACE is honored to be partners with a handful of innovative organizations that are the key to realizing ACE's community-engagement mission. Each of ACE's "community engagement partners" has found and proven a unique way to deliver structured, facilitated physical-activity experiences directly to populations that have disproportionately high rates of physical inactivity and related preventable chronic disease.
