WASHINGTON - Former Georgetown University men's basketball standout Dikembe Mutombo (I'91,H'10) was among a group of current and former professional athletes who took part in Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign event in London during the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Combining comprehensive strategies with common sense, Let's Move! is about putting children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years. Giving parents helpful information and fostering environments that support healthy choices. Providing healthier foods in our schools. Ensuring that every family has access to healthy, affordable food. And, helping kids become more physically active.
