Message from Let's Move!:

First Lady Michelle Obama is leading the U.S. Delegation to the 2012 Olympic Games and she’s calling on families around the country to support Team USA, not just by cheering on our athletes, but by getting active in their own communities.

Saturday, July 28 is the first day of competition in London. Meetup with family, friends and neighbors for your own afternoon of soccer, hoola hoop, relay races -- whatever gets you moving and having fun! RSVP for an Olympic Fun Day Meetup near you and then help spread the word! We’ll feature our favorite Let's Move! Meetups on the Let’s Move blog.

This is a new Olympic Event - Throw Down for the Town. Get your game on, weeding, digging, planting, building, and seeding. This family event in the edible garden is a team building exercise to prepare the garden for it's next phase.

Weeds & Seeds is an annual event sponsored by Victory Garden Foundation and this year, teaming up with Bay Localize, we're happy to kick off the 2012 Olympic Games in the edible garden where you get a work out and everyone is a winner.

    What about a walk around Lake Merritt, meeting at the Pergola to start? We could also have other activities if people want to bring things like frisbees and hula hoops.
