April 28, 2013 Updated Apr 28, 2013 at 2:18 PM EST

LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) -- The New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NYS AHPERD) is proud to announce the details of our 1st GET MOVING NY Events that will take place around New York State on either May 3rd, 4th or 5th, 2013.

According to a news release:

The Center for Disease Control recommends 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily. In an effort to spread this word, and get up and moving, join NYS AHPERD for the 1st GET MOVING NY Event to combat obesity and promote fitness! Acknowledging that more than one-third of adults (35.7%) in the United States are obese, and, obesity affects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States, triple the rate from just one generation ago, we need to do all we can to reverse this health crisis.
