IHRSA's 8th Annual Get Active America! begins May 2nd. If your club isn't already enrolled, please consider taking part.

Get Active America! is a national health promotion campaign to help establish IHRSA clubs as the leading voice in their communities for healthy and active lifestyles. This year, in support of the Let's Move! initiative championed by First Lady Michelle Obama, Get Active America! clubs will open their doors for one week and encourage members of their community to earn the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) by being active for 5 days a week for at least 6 out of 8 weeks. The cornerstone of the program involves outreach to the whole community -- club members and nonmembers -- to pursue an award that will ultimately develop long-term, healthy physical activity habits.

IHRSA has committed to delivering 50,000 PALA award winners to the "Million PALA Challenge", an initiative aimed at getting at least one million Americans to sign up and achieve the PALA.

When the great contributions of IHRSA clubs are reported to the First Lady and her Let's Move! team, be sure that your club is included!

Joe Moore
President & CEO, IHRSA
