First Lady Michelle Obama is set to make stops in three states all in two days to mark the third anniversary of her Let's Move! initiative.

Her national tour will arrive in Clinton, Mississippi; Chicago, Illinois; and Springfield, Missouri.

On the second day, she is expected to make a major announcement with Education Secretary Arne Duncan about bringing physical activity back to schools.

Mrs. Obama's initiative was launched on February 9, 2010 in a bid to promote dialogue over the need for proper nutrition and exercise in the lives of children and families.

Before the tour, she was scheduled to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America to promote her initiative.
