White House: A little Olympic fun

We can't all compete in the Olympics this summer, but in just a few days we can all experience some of the fun of the games in our own communities.

On Saturday, July 28, we're launching a Let's Move! Olympic Fun Day Meetup. In cities and towns all across America, family, friends, and neighbors will come together to participate in Olympic-inspired games and activities. And we want you to join the festivities:

    What: Let's Move! Olympic Fun Day
    When: Saturday, July 28
    Where: RSVP at

Join a Let's Move! meetup near you

July 28 is the first day of competition for the Olympians in London. One month later, on August 29, the Paralympic Games begin. While Team USA is getting ready to take on the world, you can show your support for our athletes -- not just by cheering them on, but by living up to the example they set.

And if you're participating in the Olympic Fun Day, we want to know about it. Share your photos and updates using the hashtag #LetsMoveDay. We'll highlight activities happening across the country on, Twitter, and Facebook.

To get started, just RSVP:

P.S. -- First Lady Michelle Obama sat down to talk about the Meetups and why it's so important for kids to be active. So take a moment and watch the First Lady, then sign up.
