National Women's Health and Fitness Day
Women’s Health and Fitness Day, held on September 27, 2017, is the nation’s largest annual health promotion event for women of all ages. This unique national program, with participation by local organizations throughout the United States, focuses attention on the importance of regular physical activity and health awareness for women. The event is similar in concept to its “sister” event, National Senior Health and Fitness Day, the nation’s largest older adult health promotion program held every May. Women’s Health and Fitness Day will also be part of a new National Women’s Health & Fitness Week, to be held annually the last week in September.
On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, more than 500 groups across the country will host women’s health and fitness events at senior centers, hospitals, health clubs, park and recreation districts, local health and service organizations, schools, retirement communities, houses of worship, and other community locations. An estimated 50,000 to 75,000 women of all ages are expected to participate in these local activities.
