Family Health & Fitness Day will be 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 are 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 are encouraged to participate, as well, even as sponsors.

Share your Family Health & Fitness Day ideas, events and photos with us online using the hashtag #NRPAFamilyFitDay.
