“Let’s Move!” Pacific Exercise Video is a Winner!

“Let’s Move!” will be presented for an award in the category of best multi-media material at the American Public Health Association’s annual conference in Boston in November.
Let’s Move! is a video resource designed to help people get up and active with a short 15 minute aerobic work out. The video features dancers from Tupua Productions. It was produced in partnership with a coalition of community groups known as WINCART (Weaving and Islander Network for Cancer Awareness Research and Training).
The video was distributed on DVD to various community groups and individuals and is also available for use online. It seems that the video was quite popular since they had to order a second batch of the videos for distribution.
