Join us for National Health and Fitness Day on June 4 and #LetsMoveCanada
As winter slides into spring, bringing warmer weather across the country, it’s the perfect time to get active!
The pandemic of the past few years has limited our options when it comes to activity, but it’s also been a vital reminder about the importance of exercise for our physical and mental wellbeing. Whatever your age, regular movement has a profound positive impact on mood, sleep, memory, concentration, anxiety, depression, and much more.
That’s why National Health and Fitness Day is here. To help Canadians get active, get healthy, and feel better. The first Saturday in June—June 4 this year—is the actual day, but we’re inviting Canadians to move from May 30 to June 5, to create momentum around movement for a whole week, and ultimately, for the whole year!
Between May 30 and June 5, share a photo or short video on social media of yourself being active. Tell your friends and followers that June 4 is National Health and Fitness Day and invite them to get active themselves. Don’t hesitate to share this letter with your friends. Your activities can go a long way to inspire other Canadians to get up and get moving!
Use the hashtag #LetsMoveCanada / #BougeonsCanada, and we’ll share your post on our social channels too, to reach even more Canadians. Organizations can find the NHFD social media assets here.
