Let’s Move: Commit to Change Physical Activity Challenge

The Let’s Move: Commit to Change Physical Activity Challenge is a county-wide initiative that focuses on physical activity, nutrition and healthy behaviors. Palm Health Foundation has partnered with Digital Vibez to present the annual challenge, which takes place from March 1-31.
The Let’s Move initiative was originally introduced on a national level, by First Lady Michelle Obama in 2010, with the goal of decreasing childhood obesity throughout the United States. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, nearly one in three children in the United States is overweight or obese. If this problem persists, 1/3 of all children born in 2000 or later will suffer from diabetes at some point in their lives, or will face other obesity-related health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma and cancer. The first lady wanted to combat these risks by urging all children, and adults, to get moving and incorporate daily exercise and good nutrition in their lives.
Palm Health Foundation responded to the alarming statistics, and began the county-wide Let’s Move: Commit to Change Physical Activity Challenge in 2012. The foundation invites residents to form teams, commit to exercising at least 30 minutes a day throughout the month of March, and log their minutes on the Let’s Move website. Palm Beach County logged 100,000 minutes in the first year of the challenge, and the numbers have increased every year since. In 2021, Palm Beach County logged over 59 million minutes! The goal of Palm Health Foundation and Digital Vibez is for residents who participate in the challenge to take charge of their health and continue incorporating physical activity in their daily lives beyond the month of March.
