Let's Move! 3rd Birthday News and Event Registration Form

February 9, 2013 marks the 3rd Birthday of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, which was launched to unite the country around our kids’ health and create real support for families to live healthier lives with participation from everyone, including parents and caregivers, elected officials, community and faith-based organizations, health care professionals, and schools.

Celebrate this 3rd birthday by hosting an event, meeting, or special activity in your city, town or county during the month of February to showcase the accomplishments you’ve made or plan to make later this year.

As local elected officials, your unique role as a convener in your community is critical to bringing various partners, constituents, and other stakeholders to the table to address the health of children in your community.  Perhaps there is a February event already happening in your city, town, or county you can build upon to incorporate messages from Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties.  In addition, we’ve created a starter list of ideas for you to consider, but feel free to be creative!!!  You’ll notice these activities complement the five goals of Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties.

We want to hear how you are celebrating!  Please share your event plans with us by completing the event description form.  We’ll use the information provided to post event information from around the country on this website, and to share with the Let’s Move! family through newsletters and blogs.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to share and celebrate with your community the accomplishments and activities you are working on to improve the health of your community’s children.

Have fun!!
