The LEGOLAND Florida Blog announced that Cartoon Network’s Move It Movement Tour is coming back. This summertime traveling event targets youth 6-14 and their parents and is presented in partnership with the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition and in support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative. Traveling from coast to coast, the tour will ultimately make its way to the gulf coast for its concluding presentation at LEGOLAND Florida on August 9th and 10th.
The Move It Movement Tour is part of Cartoon Network’s long-established, award-winning pro-social efforts to provide support and encouragement in the ongoing battle against childhood obesity through such varied activities as daily recess, health & wellness education and active after-school involvement.
Presented in a themed, exciting and fun outdoor environment, the Move It Movement Tour features multiple activity and learning stations for kids, incorporating such core partner organizations as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), NBA/WNBA FIT & NBA Hoop Troop, NFL PLAY 60 and The PGA of America. Parents also will find a variety of educational materials and tip sheets presented by CATCH and Upwave, organizations which serve to empower kids and adults alike with resources that enable them to take more control of their own healthy lifestyle choices.
