First Lady Michelle Obama traveled to Harlem, NYC to check out an innovative partnership between a local elementary school and the Police Athletic League (PAL). I knew we were close to our destination when I saw throngs of people outside on the streets waving at our cars. Entering the Police Athletic League’s Harlem Center, we saw 75 kids in matching t-shirts waiting for us. The First Lady's visit was a surprise and we heard screams of delight as she entered the gym.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of joining First Lady Michelle Obama as she launched the newest effort within the Let’s Move! initiative, Let’s Move Faith and Communities. Let’s Move! is the First Lady’s initiative to solve the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation. We launched this special effort in a conference call with over 4,500 people, including faith-based and community leaders representing more than 50 organizations that have already committed to Let’s Move Faith and Communities.
