Washington, DC - Let’s Move! Executive Director Sam Kass and New York Mets center fielder Curtis Granderson will promote First Lady Michelle Obama's Drink Up! campaign on Wednesday, Dec. 18th during a live Twitter chat devoted to the importance of staying hydrated.
Twitter users are invited to participate in the 3:30 PM ET event with the hashtag #DrinkH2O on the @letsmove, @urH2O, @PHAnews, and @cgrand3 accounts. A representative from Partnership for a Healthier America will also join the chat.
"The chat will focus on the importance of staying hydrated and the health benefits that come with making water your go-to beverage," said a Let's Move! representative. "We will offer useful tips on how to better incorporate water into your family’s daily routine."
Mrs. Obama launched Drink Up! in September, and Granderson is among a handful of sports stars who have filmed PSAs for the campaign:
