Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day RECAP!

As you’ve probably seen from our tweets and pictures on Facebook, our 6th annual Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day was a grand success!

We were so happy to have Superstar Aly Raisman in town between her tough Dancing with the Starsrehearsals to join Washington Spirit defender Aly Krieger, Tommy McFLY and Dan Hellie in encouraging kids on Capitol Hill to ‘say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking’!

Around 300 attendees, including 70 kids, nearly 30 TCC partners and seven members of congress packed the Cannon Caucus Room for a crazy, educational carnival complete with skeeball, basketball, a giant inflatable football toss and the Ask, Listen, Learn interactive game.

After Aly spoke on why she chooses to live a healthy lifestyle, kids and parents went around to each station to collect stickers on their Ask, Listen, Learn pinnies and presented them to Tommy at the scoreboard to tally up donations on behalf of The Century Council to U.S. Capitol Police and DC Scores.

Thank you to everyone who came out for a fantastic day! See you next year!
