2019 March NRPA Update Family Health Fitness Day 410 2

NRPA invites everyone to celebrate Family Health & Fitness Day, June 8, 2019. Celebrated the second Saturday of June each year, it promotes the importance of parks and recreation in keeping communities active and healthy.

For 2019, the theme is “Get Fit” with Parks and Recreation, and on June 8, at noon EDT, NRPA challenges everyone to “Get Fit” by doing a minute of jumping jacks (regular or modified) with family and/or friends at a local park or recreation center. Participants are encouraged to share photos and videos using #NRPAFamilyFitDay.

NRPA will also promote the Top 5 Ways to “Get Fit” with Parks and Recreation:

  1. Take a Walk
  2. Go for a Swim
  3. Enroll in a Fitness Program
  4. Create Your Own Exercise Routine
  5. Play Outside
