At this point I’m almost certain I’m certifiable. I just accidentally signed on to host the Stoneham Let’s Move! Olympics Meet-up.
There are 3,608 movers and 953 cities participating in the cause, according to the Let's Move! website.
"Let’s Move! has a national goal of solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. We want to spark face-to-face meetings and activities to find local solutions," reads the website. "A Let’s Move! Meetup is flexible (i.e. a discussion, a physical activity in the park or a healthy cooking class) just be sure to include the details in the event notes. It’s going to take all of us to tackle the challenge, so Let’s Move! to end the epidemic of childhood obesity together."
So that sounds great, right? Well, the next event is on Saturday, July 28 in honor of the Olympic Games starting.
Let’s Move! Olympic Fun Day Meetup
There are 233 communities and 314 movers participating in the event, according to the Let's Move! website.
"First Lady Michelle Obama is leading the U.S. Delegation to the 2012 Olympic Games and she’s calling on families around the country to support Team USA, not just by cheering on our athletes, but by getting active in their own communities," reads the website. "Saturday, July 28 is the first day of competition in London. Meetup with family, friends and neighbors for your own afternoon of soccer, hoola hoop, relay races — whatever gets you moving and having fun! RSVP for an Olympic Fun Day Meetup near you and then help spread the word! We’ll feature our favorite Let’s Move! Meetups on the Let’s Move blog."
Looking for more information? Check out the Stoneham Let’s Move Meet-up event page. I’ll be loitering on the Stoneham Town Common with my children on Saturday, at about noon. I’ll have some Olympic-themed crafts to share, a couple of relay races and a torch relay.
I hope some other folks come and that they will bring more crafts and activities to share.
