VICKSBURG, Miss. -- Officials are encouraging people to walk or jog through the rolling hills of the Vicksburg National Military Park to get in shape.

The Vicksburg Post reports that the park is participating in the initiative organized by the National Park Service and the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.

Let's Move Outside is a spin-off of first lady Michelle Obama's nationwide Let's Move initiative to end childhood obesity.

The Natchez Trace Parkway, a short drive from Vicksburg, is also among the 65 national parks participating.
