Go Daddy's Danica Patrick "Gets Moving" at the White House Today
WASHINGTON --(Business Wire)--
Daddy, the world's top platform for small businesses, sent its
inspirational spokeswoman to celebrate a spring tradition at the White
House today. Go Daddy's Danica Patrick was a special guest of the
President and First Lady at today's Easter Egg Roll, which included a
range of activities focused on health and fitness education.
"It was an honor to be at the White House, but what made today really
special was the interaction with the kids," said Danica, who recently
won the Kids Choice Award for Favorite Female Athlete. "The First Lady's
campaign to 'keep moving' and to make healthy food choices is an
important one for all of us!"
Danica participated with young students in the South Lawn "eggtivity
zone," visited with on-site chefs who offered up a variety of
nutritional treats and read "Go, Dog. Go!" to dozens of children who
gathered to see one of the sporting world's most famous women read from
the story time stage. The book describes interactions of a group of
highly mobile dogs, who operate cars in a variety of pursuits … fitting
for Go Daddy's inspirational NASCAR star who has found great success
competing in a male-dominated sport.
This year's theme was "Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!" and challenged
kids to incorporate physical activity into each day. Other celebrities
at today's annual affair included th NFL's Adrian Peterson, Academy
Award-nominated actress Quvenzhane Wallis, "Kid President" Robby Novak
and American Idol star Jordin Sparks. Celebrity chefs, including Ina
Garten and Spike Mendelsohn, prepared healthy eating demonstrations at
the "Play with your Food" station. Activities included a Yoga Garden,
basketball on the president's court and a "Hop To It!" dance party with
jump ropes and hula hoops.
Another interactive component of today's event was social media. To see
