This is the Alliance’s national healthy lifestyle initiative. The annual family health celebration promotes physical activity, strengthening families, and community opportunities. The focus of the GUGM initiative is on making movement a part of our daily lives for people of all ages and all sizes. Leading Hispanic community-based organizations organize these annual family health celebrations. Events for 2011 will take place in 10 communities throughout the summer and fall across the country. Local activities are consistent with local resources and take place in neighborhood schools, downtown areas, parks, malls, stadiums, or even indoor gyms. Activities will emphasize the importance of being active, supporting families, and building community. ¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® is made possible by the support of our national sponsor, Newman's Own Foundation.
