About Get Kids Movin!

Ten-year-old Chi Chi Monet, a recording artist, cheerleader, gymnast and dancer grew frustrated with the alarming rates of childhood obesity among her peers. Armed with information from the Obama Administration's "Let's Move" initiative, she decided to a create song called "Move" to inspire youth to be healthy. During the fall of 2012, Chi Chi joined forces with Sports Zone Elite and Think Brown INK to create a tour that would combine fitness, music, fashion and sports to reinforce a lifestyle of health. So far, the tour has stopped in Forestville, Greenbelt and Largo, Maryland, attracting between 100 and 500 families for each event. Sports Zone Elite is the presenting sponsor of Get Kids Movin!
