Let's Move! Celebrates One Year of Fighting Childhood Obesity

To celebrate the first year of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move Initiative to fight childhood obesity, she will give a special address in Atlanta discussing how far the movement has come and what still needs to be done to win the fight against childhood obesity.

Chris Draft, Founder of the Chris Draft Family Foundation, will be on hand at the event to represent the foundation's Get Checked and Get Fit initiative, which helps families lead healthier and happier lifestyles in all aspects of life.

Let’s Move! is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. Combining comprehensive strategies with common sense, Let's Move! is about putting children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years. Giving parents helpful information and fostering environments that support healthy choices. Providing healthier foods in our schools. Ensuring that every family has access to healthy, affordable food. And, helping kids become more physically active.
