LPGA Players get involved with First Lady's "Let's Move" Intiutive to fight childhood obesity at Annual White House Easter Egg Roll
Current and former LPGA stars Anna Rawson, Kris Tschetter, and Jane Geddes are on hand today at the at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll to teach children the basic fundamentals of putting at the “Explore the Moves Sports and Obstacle Course.” The interactive sports exhibit, featuring golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, and an obstacle course, is presented by tennis Hall of Famer Gigi Fernandez and business partner Valerie Stern, through their new company Baby Goes Pro.
This year’s theme at the White House Easter Egg Roll is “Ready, Set, Go!” promoting health and wellness. The White House will open its South Lawn to 36,000 lucky children aged 12 years and younger and their families. The event will feature live music, cooking stations, storytelling, the “Explore the Moves Sports and Obstacle Course” and, of course, Easter egg rolling, all to encourage children to lead healthy and active lives.
“Physical activity is a prime component of the First Lady’s campaign to combat childhood obesity,” said Fernandez. “The mission of Baby Goes Pro is to motivate kids to get active at a very young age. Our objective is directly in line with that of the First Lady’s – to “inspire a generation to move” and ultimately lead healthy and long lives. It is one of my greatest honors to participate in this annual holiday event and spread this very important message.”
