Michelle Obama Challenges Girl Scouts

GS Aug AdEarlier this month, United We Serve team launched a “Let’s Read. Let’s Move.” initiative. The goals of said initiative are to use service to promote physical activity, expand access to healthy and affordable food and prevent summer learning loss in America’s kids. Honorary Girl Scout National President Michelle Obama has challenged all Girl Scouts to take part in this opportunity. She asks all Girl Scouts to read, exercise and keep track of these activities.

GSCTX girls have a head start in this initiative. Our scouts find ways to have fun outside with their troops while maintaining their desire to enrich their minds through books. You can check out all of the fun activities our girls have been doing this summer on our Flickr and Out & About pages. If we keep it up, GSCTX can answer Ms. Obama’s challenge and show her what Central Texas girls can do if they set their mind to it. All girls can join in on the GSUSA initiative and log their hours reading and exercising right here. You can also join GSCTX by sending in your stories on how you are keeping up with your reading and exercising or just what fun stuff you have been doing this summer with your troops. Send them to us and they might be posted on the web!

Have a great rest of the summer Central Texas Girl Scouts! Keep active, smart and healthy!
