Family Health & Fitness Day was held on June 8, 2019. Celebrated the second Saturday in June each year, this special day promotes the importance of parks and recreation in keeping communities healthy. Agencies everywhere were encouraged to participate by inviting families to get active at their local park or recreation center, or by hosting an event, such as a health fair or family fun run. Members of the healthcare community were encouraged to participate, as well, even as sponsors.

Watch a recent webinar to learn about the many ways your agency can participate in future Family Health & Fitness Days.
