Since this is the first MOVE MILLER MOVE campaign those who took the lead in this campaign deserve thanks. So whether you earned a gold/silver or bronze or even just struggled to keep up, you are encouraged to keep going and keep working to make physical fitness a part of your life and your family’s life. When others see us exercise they will know that Miller is a community that is ON THE MOVE.
