WASHINGTON, D.C. – For the second year in a row, National Health Through Fitness Day will not take place in March.
The event, which has brought together health and fitness advocates in Washington, D.C. for more than 20 years, was halted in March of 2020 due to COVID-19.
Just a day before the activities were set to commence, plans were changed to protect the health and safety of everyone.
The Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) hoped to host the event in 2021, but as the pandemic continues, will be postponing the event one more year. SFIA will continue to promote the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act, legislation that encourages and incentivizes Americans to be more physically active.
This promotion includes finding supporters to personally contact members of Congress, encouraging sponsorship and passage of the bill.
“We thank everyone for their support, and plan to make great strides over the next several months as we continue to promote activity to combat threats to America’s health through preventive measures. Together, we can make America healthier and stronger.
