History
The Pierre-Fort Pierre Let’s Move Committee was formed in 2010 for the express purpose of addressing the causes and risk factors for childhood obesity and citizen wellness in the communities of Hughes and Stanley Counties in South Dakota.

The committee represents multiple sectors, including:

  • Avera St. Mary’s Hospital and Foundation
  • Capital Area Counseling
  • City of Pierre Recreation Department
  • Oahe Headstart
  • Oahe YMCA
  • parents and parent organizations
  • Pierre School District
  • Retired/Senior Volunteer Program
  • SD Department of Education
  • SD Game and Fish Department
  • SD Department of Health
  • SD Discovery Center.

Typically eight meetings are held each year, with subcommittees meeting as needed by various projects. In 2013, local elementary students formed a Pierre Student Let’s Move Committee to provide a youth perspective as we address childhood obesity and citizen wellness.
