National Get Fit Don't Sit Day
May 2, 2018

Held the first Wednesday of May each year, National Get Fit Don't Sit Day™ is an opportunity for the ADA to increase awareness of the importance of getting up and moving throughout the day—especially at work.

Each year, thousands of businesses and organizations participate in National Get Fit Don't Sit Day, and take steps to ensure the health of their employees and members through organized walks, exercise stations, yoga classes and more. We hope you'll participate in the next National Get Fit Don't Sit Day on May 2, 2018.

National Healthy Lunch Day
September 18, 2018

There is tremendous confusion about what to eat. Often the food choices people make are full of calories yet lack the nutritional value the body needs. This confusion leads to expanding waistlines, low energy and rising rates of type 2 diabetes and obesity-related illnesses. National Healthy Lunch Day™ is an annual opportunity to promote the importance of good nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle, and help people make better food choices.

We hope you'll participate in the next National Healthy Lunch Day on Sept. 18, 2018.
