Become a Let’s Move! City, Town, & Counties
The First Lady is calling on mayors and elected officials across the country to join her Let’s Move! campaign. Let’s Move Cities, Towns, and Counties engages mayors and other municipal leaders in the campaign to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. Let’s Move Cities, Towns, and Counties emphasizes the unique ability of communities to solve the challenge locally, and the critical leadership mayors and elected officials can provide to bring communities together and spur action.
Let’s Move Cities, Towns, and Counties has been very impressed with the overwhelming response by local officials eager to take action to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. At this time, we are currently assessing how we can better assist cities, towns, and counties in implementing significant actions to fight childhood obesity. That assistance will include a revised toolkit as well as additional resources and is slated to be released later this fall. We appreciate your patience as we determine how best we can help you achieve your commitments. In the meantime, we encourage you to look below for answers to some frequently asked questions and important contact information.
