National Native American JUST MOVE IT Day!

Contributed by: National Coordinator
Date: 10/16/08
Join Native communities from across the country as they celebrate the 6th Annual National Native American JUST MOVE IT Day!

Imagine thousands of people in Native communities – walking together for wellness all across the country. You and your community can help make this happen. The 6th Annual National Native American Just Move It Day is on October 22, 2008. A walk will take place at the annual National Congress of American Indians Convention on this day. If you aren’t able to join us at the walk, Just Move It (JMI) would like to encourage you and your community to organize a walk in your community and take part in this 6th annual event.

Organize any type of non-competitive physical activity event between October 22, 2008 and December 31, 2008 in your community.
