Help Chicago Catholic Charities meet Michelle Obama

Last week, my Mission Management column focused on the Chicago archdiocese's Catholic Charities' initiative to reduce childhood obesity in collaboration with Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" public awareness campaign. Embedded in that article was a video of kids having fun, dancing to award-winning pop singer Beyoncé's song "Move Your Body."

Chicago's Catholic Charities just submitted a new video about its summer lunch program to the Let's Move video challenge and has been selected as a finalist. The winner is chosen by viewer votes.

Given the substantial, vital and successful effort undertaken by Chicago's Catholic Charities, the group would be most grateful for your vote. The winner gets to go to Washington, D.C., and meet the First Lady.
