Regular physical activity is good for everyone’s health, and people of all ages and body types can be physically active. National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is a great time to spread the word about the benefits of getting active, like improving heart health and lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes.
With this and other National Health Observance toolkits offered on healthfinder.gov, we’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, health care providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like getting more physical activity.
This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Add information about physical activity to your newsletter.
- Tweet about National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.
- Host a community event where families can be active and learn about fitness activities.
- Add this Web badge to your website.
By raising awareness about the importance of physical activity, communities, organizations, and health professionals can help improve health for people of all ages and abilities.
