Second Annual 'Let's Move, Let's Play' Event Gets Families Out of the House and Onto the Field

The event, which included a 3K walk had both the young and young at heart out on the community track early Saturday morning.

Multi-colored balloons marked the end of a 3K walk/run along the track Saturday.

The on Aug. 25 attracted both avid runners as well as families to participate in the city of Campbell's efforts to get residents off the couch and outdoors to combat obesity. The city’s Recreation and Community Services Department hosted the event and 175 residents pre-registered for the event, Campbell Recreation Director Cynthia Bojorquez said.

"We got lots of comments about how great the I heart Campbell T-shirts were on everyone and folks wanting to know where to purchase," Bojorquez said of the most commonly heard thing from attendees that morning. The shirts can be purchased at the recreation department's offices in the Campbell Community Center.

The event was inspired by the national Let’s Move! program created by First Lady Michelle Obama, which promotes physical activity for Americans, especially children and seniors, to combat obesity.

Campbell resident and No. 273 Sarthak Grover was the first to finish the 3K and made it look easy.

The Cupertino High School student found out about the event on Facebook, he said.

Along with the 3K portion of the morning, residents were able to check out first hand all that the Community Center has to offer. Spinning, music and yoga booths offered a chance to try out different venues.
