White House Champions of Change: Let’s Move and Physical Activity

“The White House Champions of Change program
highlights the stories and examples of citizens across the country that
represents President Obama’s vision of out-innovating, out-educating, and
out-building the rest of the world through projects and initiatives that move
their communities forward.” In addition to the Champions of Change program, First Lady Michelle Obama established Let’s Move!, a comprehensive, collaborative
initiative to end the epidemic of childhood obesity within a
generation. The White House is currently seeking recommendations of individuals and
organizations that are increasing access to physical activity for children and
young adult
