On February 28th of 2013, one of our own Eastern Illinois University Kinesiology professors, Dr. Mark Kattenbraker of the Kinesiology and Sport Studies Department was invited to attend the 2013 National Fitness Initiative for promotion of our First Lady’s goals for American Schools. The event held in Chicago, Illinois was called “Let’s Move!” This experience gave excellent information on current activity in our schools and focused on updating our programs from the initiative by the first lady, Michelle Obama. Many high profile fitness promoters were present including: Michelle Obama, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, NIKE President, and CEO of AAHPERD. Several celebrities were also in attendance including: Serena Williams, Colin Kaepernick, Gabby Douglas, Bo Jackson, Dominique Dawes, Bob Harper, and Allyson Felix. One of the greatest benefits from this event noted by Dr. Kattenbraker is the attempts to unify people in achieving greater healthy goals as a society and the future goals behind the National Governments efforts to get everyone involved in the promotion of fitness in America.
