Her role is to help build bridges between Let’s Move! Blaine and organizations with similar missions. “The focus of Let’s Move! Blaine on increasing access to fresh and healthy food and physical activity is a great fit with the goals of farm-to-school and our community partners. We all share the conviction that what we feed our kids matters.”

Kelle Sunter: Kelle Rankin-Sunter has a passion for gardening, good nutrition AND community.
"Serving on the board of Let’s Move Blaine helps me do it all! My goal is to get more parents involved in the gardening process. This will hopefully result in better nutrition for a healthier overall community. Please join us!"
Kelle teaches gardening classes at the Blaine Library along with George Kaas (Blaine H.S. Horticulture).
In September of 2011, Blaine City Council declared Blaine as a Let's Move! city, supporting the national Let's Move! initiative.
The Let's Move! City program provided the perfect template to help Blaine become a healthier community. Ted Laed's quote, "It takes a healthy village to raise a healthy child" inspired me to develop this program by bringing together various health-minded leaders and resources of our surrounding communities to create and support the health of our school children.
