Drew Brees Helps Mark Anniversary of First Lady's Initiative

NFL quarterback Drew Brees may be watching Super Bowl 45 from the side lines this year, but he's not going away quietly into that dark night.

Instead, as the council member for the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition he will join First Lady Michelle Obama, and other national and community leaders to help mark the 1st anniversary of the First Lady's Let's Move! healthy eating and fitness campaign.

Brees will join the First Lady on a series of speaking engagements next week to discuss what the initiative has accomplished, as well as the campaign’s next phase. He joins U.S. Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin, and U.S. mayors to help keep the Let's Move! message going.

The First Lady will also appear on The Today Show, and Live With Regis & Kelly.

She will make a speech on February 9th at 4pm at a local Atlanta school to highlight how the school is working with children to promote healthy eating. The event will be streamed live at www.letsmove.gov.
