GO DADDY'S DANICA PATRICK "GETS MOVING" AT THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY
Joins the "First Family" & 30,000+ Children for 135th Annual Easter Egg Roll
WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 1, 2013) -- Go 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 the 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 Danica's personal tweets and photos about today's festivities, go to @DanicaPatrick, @GoDaddy and @DanicaRacing on Twitter. You can also check out @LetsMove and @FitnessGov or Facebook.com/letsmove or visit LetsMove.gov.
