National Women's Health & Fitness Day is the nation's largest annual health promotion event for women of all ages, and is always held on the last Wednesday in September. The 2017 event is set for September 27. This unique national program-with participation by local organizations throughout the U.S.-focuses attention on the importance of regular physical activity and health awareness for women. The event is similar in concept to its "sister" event National Senior Health & Fitness Day®-the nation's largest older adult health promotion program held every May. Women's Health & Fitness Day will also be
a part of a new National Women's Health & Fitness WeekSM, to be held annually the last week in September.
