America's Move to Raise a Healthier Generation of Kids
Mayor Lord and the Goodyear City Council have made quality of life for families and children a top priority. To affirm this pledge, we have adopted the National League of Cities’ platform for strengthening families and improving outcomes for children and youth, by formal Council resolution.
In the spirit of this commitment, the City of Goodyear has signed onto the “Let’s Move!” partnership in order to encourage wellness and healthy lifestyles in our community. Created by First Lady Michelle Obama, the Let’s Move! program aims to curb childhood obesity by promoting healthy food choices and increased physical activity. It is our hope this program will help instill healthy habits in our children, so they are able to accomplish their goals and aspirations as adults.
To meet our obligations as a “Let’s Move! City,” the City of Goodyear will be creating activities and events that promote the organization’s mission. We will be denoting these official Let’s Move activities on our Parks and Recreation event calendar with the symbol seen above. We encourage you and your family to participate in this important program as much as possible!
