Get Moving Like an Olympian this Summer

Today, President Obama announced the members of the Presidential Delegation to the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The First Lady will lead this group of Olympic and Paralympic athletes as America roots for Team USA!

“This summer I’ll be cheering on Team U.S.A. at the Olympic Games in London with this distinguished group of champions who truly represent the best of our country,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. “Olympians and Paralympians are true American heroes and role models for all of us, especially our young people. And I know that this delegation will help inspire a generation of young people to get into the Olympic spirit by getting active and healthy so they can reach their fullest potential and reach their dreams.”

But you don't have to go to London to get active this summer. The organizations that help shape Team USA are also working with the Partnership for a Healthier America and Let’s Move! to give at least 1.7 million kids an opportunity to get moving by offering free or low-cost clinics, races, school visits, after school programs and other activities. You can find something in your community here.

Check out the video below from the Partnership for a Healthier America for ways to get moving with Team USA:
