Welcome to the LET'S MOVE VB website! We want to provide you with tips about healthy eating and active living so that everyone in your family can get fit together! This website is also a resource to link you to the many activities happening that will keep Virginia Beach families healthy!
LET'S MOVE VB is a community outreach initiative designed to support the City of Virginia Beach Mayor's Action Challenge Committee for a Healthy Lifestyle and Environment. The campaign is designed to reach out to youth and families to provide a unique way to get kids moving (through dancing!). It will also provide physical fitness and nutrition education as well as opportunities to families and communities in an effort to work toward reducing childhood obesity in Virginia Beach.
LET'S MOVE VB is part of the Mayor's Action Challenge for Children and Families, which is an initiative of the National League of Cities. The Mayor's Action Challenge focuses on four major areas that work toward improving the lives of children and which provide them with the "building blocks that every child needs, at a minimum, to live a full, healthy and productive life."
