Boogie Box for Pediatric Obesity!

Happy Friday! Every year my company puts on a large-scale event to bring awareness to a health issue. Last year, our Public Relations team worked tirelessly to break the Guinness Book of World Records for simultaneous yo-yoing to raise awareness for yo-yo dieting. This year, their efforts did not stop!
This year, my company and our amazing PR team has partnered with Boogie Box Fitness at Valley Fair Mall in West Valley, Utah to demonstrate how to 'Get Our Kids Moving for Health'! To raise awareness about our nation’s pediatric obesity epidemic and to encourage families to adopt more healthful lifestyles, hundreds will dance to a mix of martial-arts and hip-hop moves. They have choreographed a flash mob dance (remember the flash mob “freeze” at Grand Central Station and the seemingly random people freezing for 5 minutes?) that will happen at the mall seemingly out of nowhere!

Here is the YouTube video from yesterday’s flash mob dance.  I love how the mall-goers totally get into it (like the man dancing at minute 1...awesome!)
Get Our Kids Moving for Health!
If you happen to be in Utah, come out to the Valley Fair Mall at 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, October 23, 2010 for a FREE event. Everyone will learn this dance and get a free t-shirt.  Everyone who attends will also be entered in a raffle to win a WiiFit. This is a fun event for the whole family. Come on out and Get Our Kids MOVING!!!

And be sure to get your family and friends moving, too, by sharing this link!  Get Our Kids Moving Demo

Happy Friday guys!  And thank you for your support!!



  1. I loved this! The song made me want to get up and dance!

  2. What a great company you work this!

  3. Great idea! I won't be near Utah, but maybe I'll do some dancing at home in honor of it!

  4. That music is vulgar. Someone really needs to be careful what you put in front of kids. Shame on your company.
