3 Ways to Get Your Family -- and Community -- Fit

1. Take part in the 11th annual Family Health & Fitness Day USA on Saturday, September 29. Join a community walk, play active games, and find other family-focused fitness events around the country

For information, go to


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 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.
