National Women's Health and Fitness Day

Sometimes we take our health for granted, but today is a day to step back and take a close look at your own well-being.  National Women's Health and Fitness Day is the nation's largest annual health promotion event for women.

An estimated 80,000-100,000 women of all ages will gather at senior centers, hospitals, schools, and other community locations to partake in local women's health and fitness events.  What can you do to celebrate?  Get the girls together for a workout and use #womenshealthandfitnessday to post on social media.

And, remember, it doesn't have to be running a marathon, just get outside and take a walk!  National Women's Health and Fitness Day was started in 2002 by the Health Information Resource Center and is observed every year on the last Wednesday in September.
