Simone Biles Joins us for Alcohol #Responsibility Month

Remember back in March when Simone Biles joined our Ask, Listen, Learn team? Now that April—Alcohol Responsibility Month—is here, we are rolling out some great new projects featuring this most decorated American gymnast!  Our goal is to help parents and teachers talk to kids about saying YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking. And we are having a lot of fun along the way.

Simone spent the day in Washington, DC meeting with Attorneys General from over 20 states to create Public Service Announcements (PSAs) encouraging parents to have conversations with their kids about saying NO to underage drinking. If you have not seen them yet, check them out here

Did you see the video from Simone Biles and your state’s attorney general? Be sure to share it with your friends on social media and tell us what you think on Twitter or Instagram.  

As we filmed throughout the day, we were captivated by Simone’s bright and vibrant personality and her dedication to our program—she worked tirelessly to get every take perfect! We were able to catch Simone in her element—professional, silly, kind, and full of spirit—and could not help but create this behind the scenes video to find out what her day looked like on set!

Simone will be back later in the month to help us wrap up the month joining us in Washington, DC for a special event on Capitol Hill. Along with some other friends, we will be helping kids make healthy decisions for a healthy lifestyle. We are looking forward to the event—and we will be sure to share it with you. Stay tuned!
