First lady Michelle Obama will return to Chicago next week as part of a nationwide tour to promote her children's health campaign and announce how schools will bring back physical activity, according to a press release.

The two-day trip highlights the third anniversary of "Let's Move," an initiative that promotes health and physical activity in children. The tour stops in Chicago on Feb. 28 and will showcase the initiative's progress since 2010, the release states.

Obama was in Chicago earlier this month, when she attended the funeral of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, a King College Prep honor student who was gunned down in a South Side Park.

While at next week's Chicago event, Obama will be joined by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, as well as athletes like Olympic gold medalists Gabby Douglas and Dominique Dawes and tennis player Serena Williams. A "surprise musical guest" is also set to attend.
