Dear [name of recipient],
Move Your Way is the national campaign to promote the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. It aims to help people understand how much physical activity they need to be healthy and how to fit it into their daily lives.
We’re implementing the Move Your Way campaign locally to help members of our community get all the health benefits of physical activity — and your participation in the campaign is critical to making that happen.
No matter what your skill set, you can make valuable contributions to our work. For example, we’re always looking for support in these key areas:
- Events — help plan our launch event and provide guidance for ongoing community events to maximize message and program reach.
- Materials — take the lead on selecting, adapting, and distributing Move Your Way campaign materials to help promote our local physical activity events and initiatives.
- Media — provide guidance on using social media and other communication channels to spread the word about Move Your Way.
- Partnerships — recommend ways to engage with influential local organizations and leaders to build support for the campaign and coordinate local physical activity efforts.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to your friends and colleagues. If you don’t have time to lead a key task or participate in regular meetings, we can talk about other ways for you to get involved.
I look forward to working with you to improve the health of our community through physical activity.
