Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties

December 6, 2012

The National League of Cities (NLC) and Let’s Move!  have partnered to launch the Let's Move! Cities, Towns and Counties (LMCTC) initiative. Over the next year, LMCTC sites will be encouraged to accomplish five actionable goals that can help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic in our nation’s cities, towns and counties.

These five goals are designed to promote sustainable strategies that will directly impact the health of local residents. Through its Institute for Youth, Education and Families, NLC and its partners will provide local elected officials with tools and technical assistance that makes it easier to accomplish LMCTC goals.

Gold, silver, and bronze medals, with associated benchmarks, have been established for the LMCTC goals.  Over the next year, LMCTC sites have the opportunity to earn five gold medals.  When an LMCTC site indicates reaching a benchmark through the tracking survey, thereby earning a medal, their site will be recognized by NLC on the initative's website.

Learn more about how to get your town, city, or county signed up, meet who has already started, and get more information on the five goals.
