The President's Challenge

In support of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! Initiative to end childhood obesity within a generation, the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition is challenging Americans of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to achieve their PALA. PALA requires youth participants, ages 6-17, to engage in physical activity for 60 minutes, five days per week, for six out of eight weeks. Adults should participate in 30 minutes of physical activity for the same duration. All participants who complete the requirements will receive a PALA certificate of achievement signed by the co-chairs of the President's Council, Drew Brees and Dominique Dawes.
