Today, as I just discovered is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day! This day is set aside every year, and has been for the past 10 years for women of all ages to participate in locally organized events or to just celebrate it by being active on their own or with family and friends.
“Our goal for this national event is to encourage women to take control of their health: to learn the facts they need to make smart health choices, and to make time for regular physical activity,” adds Patricia Henze, Executive Director of the Health Information Resource Centersm, organizer of the event. Henze adds, “Women’s Health & Fitness Day is also designed to showcase the many women’s health resources available through the local organizations that will host events on Wednesday, September 28, 2011.” (source: FitnessDay.com)
Not that most of us need an excuse to get out and enjoy a beautiful Fall day but what a wonderful opportunity to get someone else involved in an event, whether publically organized or on your own, that may not otherwise have gotten any exercise that day.
So what will you be doing to Celebrate National Women’s Health and Fitness Day?
National Women’s Health and Fitness Day takes place the last Wednesday of September.
