2018 National Health Through Fitness Day

SFIA Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of National Health Through Fitness Day

2018 was an exciting year for SFIA and the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act. For the first time ever, the PHIT Act passed the House of Representatives with an overwhelming (and bipartisan) vote of 277-142. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, such as the government shutdown, time ran out on PHIT, and the year ended without passage. However, this means that we will be taking on 2019 with great momentum and great support from former and newly-elected congressional members.

Celebrity athletes, American College of Sports Medicine and sports & fitness industry leaders will join SFIA on Capitol Hill on March 13th to spread the word about PHIT and garner even more support. We would love for you to join us this year, as we continue to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles in 2019.
