National Senior Health & Fitness Day

Save the Date: This year’s actual National Senior Health & Fitness Day event has been rescheduled and is now set for Wednesday, October 28, 2020*

National Senior Health & Fitness Day, now in its 27th year, is traditionally held on the last Wednesday in May. As the nation’s largest annual older adult health and wellness event, its goals are to help keep older Americans healthy and fit, and to showcase what local organizations are doing in their communities to promote senior health and wellness.

With this year’s coronavirus crisis, local groups could not host in-person events on Wednesday, May 27th, so we created two events for 2020: National Senior Health & Fitness Day: 2020 Virtual Event on Wednesday, May 27th, and the actual event set for later this year.

We have set the date for this year’s actual National Senior Health & Fitness Day: Wednesday, October 28th*. Registration for our actual event is now open, and will be free this year to all interested organizations. (The regular 2020 event registration fee was $34.95 per location.)

*Note: If CDC guidance on seniors safely participating in group activities has not changed by early October, the Wednesday, October 28th National Senior Health & Fitness Day event will be held virtually.

National Senior Health & Fitness Day is organized as a public-private partnership by the Mature Market Resource Center, a national information clearinghouse for the older adult market. Organizations interested in hosting local 2020 National Senior Health & Fitness Day events must register every year in order to legally use the event name and logo, which are federal trademarks.
