The program runs for approximately 30-45 minutes total.

The Good Move Program focuses on healthy living and physical activity. This program is run by the Thunder's broadcaster, Cameron Close, who leads Thunder players in a discussion about the positives and necessity of healthy living and physical activity in every day life. The program involves interactive pieces between the players and the kids and runs for approximately 20 minutes. Following the presentation, a question and answer session is held, ending with a group photo.
