White House representatives, Olympian Terry Brahm and other celebrities are expected to attend Let’s Move! Indy, a 5K run/ walk and fitness expo, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on September 22 at White River State Park. The event, part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s national fitness initiative, will also showcase the ReloveLife (also known as Indiana Healthy Choices) and the Hoosier Health Movement programs to try to solve childhood obesity and improve public fitness overall.
The event will also feature an interactive Kid’s Health Expo, a bounce zone with rock wall, obstacle course, giant slide and interactive games and activities. Organizers stress the importance of the event and programs, informing that Indiana is the 43rd least healthy state in the U.S. “This is
the start of giving kids a voice. They are choosing to lead the way to a healthier America,” says State Representative Karlee Macer, Indy’s honorary event co-chair.
