North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson is joining millions of people across the UK to celebrate sport and activity as part of National Fitness Day.
Supported by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, the event sees people from all ages and backgrounds come together to highlight the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle, with thousands of events taking place throughout the country.
Last year more than 19 million people took part in the event – despite the effects COVID. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the campaign, and it’s hoped that millions more people will rediscover or return to the activities they love.
Baroness Grey-Thompson said: “The past 18 months have been extremely difficult for physical activity, both for people who have been unable to take part in their usual sport or fitness activities, to providers who have had their doors closed and seen revenue dry up entirely. National Fitness Day represents an opportunity to highlight the value of physical activity.”
Justin said: “Being active is so important, and is a cause I have supported throughout my time as an MP. National Fitness Day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the health benefits of sport and physical activities, may be even try a new sport or active hobby.”
