Federal Partners Help Kids Exercise

by The United We Serve Team

U. S. Department of the Interior (DOI)

One of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to get youth active is by playing outside. This summer initiative, in collaboration with Let’s Move Outside!, provides parents the tools, ideas, and tips they need to get their families moving outdoors. Parents and kids are encouraged to bike through National Parks to improve endurance and balance, explore the country by hiking a local trail, and set aside time for play to improve children’s mental and physical health.

U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

Youth need 60 minutes of active play time each day. Through the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports (PCPFS), Let's Read. Let's Move. will get more youth physically active. HHS hopes that thousands of young people across the country will take part in the President’s Active Lifestyle program and log their activity online. Toolkits provide parents, educators and groups information on ways to participate in the President's Challenge and the program’s rules.
