Move Your Body, End Childhood Obesity

Posted: Updated:

More than three years ago, First Lady Michelle Obama developed an initiative to end childhood obesity.

In Billings, students at Riverside Middle School danced for the 2013 National kick-off of Move Your Body; an event founded by the Wat-Ahh Foundation in support of Michelle Obama's campaign.

"It is important. A lot of them need to get up and get moving through out the day. So we have this program, that is a couple days a week, that during their SSR time they can come down here and do different activities," said Michelle Morgan, an 8th grade teacher at Riverside.

Riverside Middle School has been participating in the Move Your Body campaign since it began three years ago. They offer the activity two days a week for students wanting to get active.
