South Bend to become "Let's Move" City

Posted:

You've probably seen commercials for Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" Initiative...

It's a program dedicated to beating childhood obesity.

Now the city of South Bend is becoming a community committed to that initiative.

Many of the things South Bend does already qualifies them for "Bronze" status within the Let's Move program... But many leaders within the community want to see the city go for the gold.

To do that... South Bend has to meet 5 goals that promote strategies to stay healthy.

Paul Davis, lead health educator at Healthworks, says,  "I think this is really huge. It's a really good step forward as far as reducing obesity and just living a healthier lifestyle in South Bend."

The "Let's Move" campaign kick off is Wednesday at 9:30 am at Madison Primary Center on North Lafayette.
