South Lawn Series Event Interviews - First Lady Michelle Obama - Part 3

[Michelle Obama] One of the incentives we worked on is the
president's active lifestyle award; we're also calling it
PALA, and this challenges kids to keep moving for at least 60
minutes a day for a consecutive series of time and if they are
able to do that then they get an award and can waive
it in front of their friends and make them all very jealous.
But right now we've got about 500,000 kids who already have
gotten their PALA awards, and we hope
to get a million by September.
So we're reaching out to the entire community and this is
something that parents can do along with their kids.
Make it a family challenge;
I know we do that in our household.
