Help Fight Childhood Obesity- Get Active With Let’s Move! BMX Race Days Aug 11th -18th (Giveaway) (Now Closed)




The Childhood Obesity epidemic has become a national crisis that cuts across all facets of American Life.  According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity affects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States.  To help fight this, USA BMX, The Partnership for a Healthier America and Let’s Move! (The program developed by First Lady Michelle Obama) are working together to provide children and their families an opportunity to become more active. 


Starting August 11th through the 18th USA BMX will be offering Free Race Days to new riders at participating tracks across the U.S. and Canada.  This initiative, called the Let’s Move! BMX Race Days is designed to get families active and help bolster childhood nutrition and wellness.  New riders across the country are encouraged to come to this event!


Exercise is an important aspect of staying fit. This event will provide new riders with an opportunity to get moving while having fun. BMX is a great option for offering an individual sport “where nobody sits on the bench” and the entire family can participate! There are over 350 participating tracks in North America, each designed to accommodate all skill levels from the novice to the expert rider.
