Move More Kids is a childhood obesity prevention program developed in 2007 through a grant from the New Balance Foundation.

Move More Kids initially provided funding to schools, after-school programs, and communities for physical activity equipment or structural improvements that encourage physical activity. Move More Kids now partners with Let’s Go! to offer programming in these areas, as well as the childcare setting, expanding our reach to children ages 0-18.
