Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) March 10, 2010 -- On Friday 5th March 2010, LazyTown superhero Sportacus (aka Magnus Scheving) joined Michelle Obama for the US Soccer Foundation & National Alliance for Hispanic Health youth soccer clinic, in Washington, D.C. In addition to this event, LazyTown will be teaming up with the US Soccer Foundation on a 25 date tour to Hispanic communities throughout the US, helping to get kids moving with appearances from Sportacus.
