Let's Move! 2 simple words but a HUGE crusade in the right direction. The formula is pretty simple. Take an A-List Celeb, with several iconic hits who's dance moves and routines have been emulated by several fans and turn one of her hit songs into a dance video to get adolescents (and people of all ages) to get moving and fight obesity! Beyonce Knowles “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” is gaining tons of momentum! Check it out here:
Are you moving yet? I'm sure there will be other celebs on board pretty soon! With dynamic leaders such as Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, NJ, musicians such as Master P and countless other athletes, the LetsMove Campaign is taking the US by storm!
Actually, I was asked, as part of First Lady Michelle Obama's LetsMove! campaign to present a "surprise" workout session at my home church during Sunday morning worship service this Sunday May 1st! I'm really excited and plan to really make it the best 5-10 minute workout ever as part of the "Let's Move Faith and Communities" challenge by First Lady Michelle Obama back in November 2010 to churches.
Since this challenge was made, the White Houses' faith-based offices have been recruiting converts for the nutrition crusade. The executive director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Joshua DuBois, has been a huge pusher for Let’s Move! In addition, Max Finberg, the director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has joined with John Kelly—the strategic adviser for faith-based and neighborhood partnerships at the Corporation for National and Community Service (a federal agency)—to launch the National Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps. The organization is sending new AmeriCorps volunteers to urban and rural areas across the country, where they will work closely with churches and community groups to fuel the campaign.
