SFIA's 2015 National Health Through Fitness Day - Washington, DC

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 - Wednesday, March 4, 2015

SFIA National Health Throught Fitness Day
Capitol Hill Campaign to "Get America Moving to Improve Health"


National Health Through Fitness Day Overview:

SFIA National Health Through Fitness Day (NHTF Day) is the culmination of a year round effort by the SFIA and its many sponsors and volunteers to pass major U.S. legislation to “Get America Moving”. For the past 16 years, the SFIA has brought people together in Washington, D.C. to accomplish our goals. Approximately 150 leaders from the sports, fitness, and PE industries meet in early March to lobby Congress to pass key legislation which will help our country overcome a major epidemic, obesity and sedentary lifestyles. Other attendees include company representatives from the food and beverage industry.

Each year 15-20 sports celebrities such as Herschel Walker, Mia Hamm, Abby Wambach, Peyton Manning, Tim Brown, and more come to Washington DC to help our cause. Click here to view the list of 2014 celebrity athletes. They are brought to NHTF Day by major companies such as Nike, Under Armour, Reebok, Prince, Everlast, and Gatorade.

For each registrant of the day, SFIA creates an individual schedule of Congressional Meetings for registrants that they will follow for the day. Most attendees will be following the same schedule as 5-6 other attendees. Participants of the day will meet their groups that they will be traveling on "The Hill" with the morning of the NHTF Day Breakfast Briefing that is held before the groups travel up to Capitol Hill to begin their day of meetings.

The current legislation the SFIA is focused on for NHTF Day is the SFIA Increase Participation Plan (IPP), the Carol M. White Physical Education Act (PEP) and the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act. These initiatives will help “Get America Moving” and help overcome the obesity crisis.
