By: PCFSN Staff

The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition announced phase two of the I Can Do It, You Can Do It! (ICDI) program at a Presidential Active Lifestyle Awards (PALA+) ceremony for more than 1,200 students with disabilities in Miami, Florida. ICDI facilitates and encourages opportunities for all Americans, regardless of ability, to lead a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition. ICDI previously focused on youth participation and was implemented at nine sites across the U.S. Today, the program includes children AND adults with disabilities. The Council’s goal is to expand and implement the program in at least 100 sites nationwide over the next five years.  To find out how to become an ICDI Advocate, please send an e-mail to ICDI@hhs.gov.
