Family Health & Fitness Day Is June 10, 2023

Family Health & Fitness Day will be held on June 10, 2023! Celebrated the second Saturday in June each year, this special day promotes the importance of parks and recreation in keeping communities healthy and active.

Park and recreation agencies everywhere are encouraged to participate by sharing ways families can get active on June 10 — whether through participating in virtual programs at home or in their local parks. Members of the healthcare and public health communities are encouraged to participate, as well, even as sponsors. 

You can download the Family Health & Fitness day logo now, and stay tuned for the outreach toolkit! The toolkit is meant to make promoting and celebrating Family Health & Fitness Day in your community a little easier, and includes sample social media posts, press release templates for before and after your event, key research to highlight and more. It is designed to help you generate positive media coverage and support for your Family Health & Fitness Day activities, and ultimately, the good work of your agency and the health and wellness benefits you bring to your community.
