Together we can make a healthier Kitsap
Join in during the month of May and get moving!
Many of us are looking for ways to get the recommended amount of daily physical activity, and the pandemic made that even more challenging for some. In a local 2021 community survey, over half of respondents reported worsening physical activity since the start of the pandemic. It's time to change that, move away from our screens, and move our bodies! Physical Activity is important for general health and well being.
Some immediate benefits include:
The Kitsap Moves campaign originally kicked-off in May 2022 for all of Kitsap County. It served as a month long event for the community to come together and collectively move more. The campaign is now in its second year and we are more excited than ever to encourage you to move more and be part of the initiative.
Below you will find a pledge form. Join us in committing to being more active during the month. You will also find some helpful resources such as an employers toolkit and links to fact sheets and videos for those that need a little extra inspiration.
We hope you will join us and get active in whatever way is accessible and fun for you!
If you are an employer looking to motivate your workplace to get more active, we have the toolkit for you! Check out the new Kitsap Moves Employer Toolkit for ideas and tips to engage your workplace and support movement in the month of May and beyond!
