Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move' campaign was launched in hopes to eliminate childhood obesity. Childhood obesity actually affects one third of American children and at least $150 billion is spent every year to treat the condition and yet, the rate continues to grow.

Alarmingly, obesity rates have tripled in the past 30 years, which could mean that American children will have a shorter lifespan than their own parents! Such upsetting stats has moved Michelle Obama to create this 'Let's Move' crusade, which hopes to solve this epidemic.
