Michelle Obama Brings Lets Move Campaign to Newark

By Marie DeNoia Aronsohn
First Lady Michelle Obama visited Newark’s Maple Avenue School to promote her Let’s Move! campaign to end childhood obesity. She participated in a small group discussion with four Newark public school students and two high school students who sit on the advisory board of the National Alliance for a Healthier Generation in the school’s cafeteria.  Following that meeting, she addressed a student assembly, congratulating them on the many innovative fitness programs at Maple Ave, and encouraging them to spread the word about the importance of getting and keeping fit.
