Thank you to everyone — especially our member agencies and partners — who participated in this year’s Family Health & Fitness Day. Together, we are bringing awareness to the important role of parks and recreation in building healthy, active communities. You can view event photos and more by searching for the hashtag #NRPAFamilyFitDay on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE for next year’s Family Health & Fitness Day, June 8, 2019.

NRPA’s Family Health & Fitness Day — celebrated on the second Saturday in June each year — 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.

Sponsorship opportunities for Family Health & Fitness Day are available. To secure a sponsorship, please contact Heather Williams at or 703.858.4743.
