Today is a unique day for women. September 25th is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day. An estimated 100,000 women of all ages will participate in over 1400 local registered event sites throughout the United States. The goal of today’s events is to promote the importance of health awareness and regular physical activity for women of all ages.
Traditionally held on the last Wednesday in September, the event involves more than 1,000 groups across the country. Multiple events are being held simultaneously at senior centers, hospitals, health clubs parks, schools, and churches. Local women's events will include fitness walks, exercise demonstrations, health fairs and health information workshops. Most local events will include an exercise or physical activity component, as well as educational information about women's health and fitness. The primary goal of the event is to encourage women to take control of their health, learn necessary information to make smart health care choices, and learn the importance of physical activity.
Organizations interested in hosting future events can register to do so, and will receive an event manual, planning activities, sample event incentive items, posters, and copy-right-free health information that can be used for distribution.
