“It’s about all of us coming together to once again make being active a way of life for our kids. And it’s about showing our kids that being active is fun. How about a little fun? Because when kids have early, positive experiences with physical activity, that sets them on the course for life, shaping their habits not just when they’re young, but as adults, as well,” Mrs. Obama shared in her speech. “And once we’ve gotten our kids excited about being active, then we need to give them opportunities to be active every day, throughout the day.”
