National Get Fit Don’t Sit Day is May 4th!

Get Up and Move!

Thank you for your interest in National Get Fit Don’t Sit Day!

On Wednesday, May 4, The American Diabetes Association host National Get Fit Don’t Sit DaySM. And we want you to join in the fun!

You may have always known that exercise is good for you, but it’s likely you didn’t know until recently that too much sitting is actually harmful for your health. That’s why the Association recommends that everyone, including people with diabetes, limit the amount of time they spend sitting. In fact, we advise getting up and moving at least every 90 minutes.

Here at the American Diabetes Association, we value your health and want to empower you with the resources you need to get moving—today and every day.

For HR Personnel and Business Groups: Sign up for our Get Fit Don’t Sit Toolkit. Here you’ll find many creative ideas for your employees including resources and day of event activation.
