For information, go to fitnessday.com/family.
2. Sign our Fit Families petition. The Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act is a new bill in Congress that would let Americans put up to $1,000 a year in pretax Health Savings Accounts. Use the money for exercise-related costs such as gym memberships, fitness equipment, and sports-league fees for kids and adults.
Go to www.fitnessmagazine.com/petition and add your name to help move this important legislation forward!
3. Sign up for a local race, ride, or endurance event to benefit a favorite charity.
