Churches Get Columbus Moving on “Let’s Move!” Day

Churches Get Columbus Moving on “Let’s Move!” Day

Story by Allegheny West Conference Staff

This year Allegheny West Conference churches from across Columbus, Ohio, teamed up to launch Let’s Move Columbus. The event is part of a national health initiative by Adventists Instep for Life in response to Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign.

The Columbus All Nations church led the effort and obtained sponsorships from the City of Columbus Public Health Department and several companies and local organizations. Volunteers ran four events simultaneously at locations in the North, South, East and West parts of the city. Most locations provided obstacle courses that showed parents and children how much fun they can have by doing physical activities together.

Volunteers distributed more than 4,000 Adventist books, tracts and magazines to participants. Organizers have started planning for Let’s Move Columbus 2015 and already have community organizations committing to sponsor and take part next September.
