Wednesday, September 8th-Mrs. Obama will travel to the New Orleans community for a morning event at Brock Elementary School in Slidell, Louisiana, focusing on the next phase of the Let's Move! campaign.

The goal of the Let's Move! initiative is to encourage children to lead healthier and more active lifestyles and to end childhood obesity within a generation.
The afternoon of the 8th, Mrs. Obama will join NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and former NFL coach Tony Dungy for an afternoon event highlighting the Play 60 campaign and the NFL's newest efforts to support Let's Move! This event is part of a NFL youth clinic administered in the days leading up to September 9th, when the New Orleans Saints, who visited the White House earlier this year after their Super Bowl victory, will kick-off the NFL regular season with their first home game in the Superdome.
