Let's Move! Cities, Towns and Counties supports local elected officials who are working to build healthier communities. In July 2012, the First Lady announced private and public sector commitments to support this initiative with new tools, resources, and a framework to enhance the vital work happening at the local level.
"Every day, local officials like these are changing our children's lives and helping them learn and grow and fulfill every last bit of their potential. And thanks to the commitments we're announcing today, our cities, towns, and counties will be able to do every more," said First Lady Michelle Obama. "We still have a long way to go to solve this problem. But if leaders like these keep coming to the table and we all keep working together, then I am confident that we can give all our children the happy, healthy futures they so richly deserve."
