Take 15 for Physical Activity

The expansion of the Take 15 for the Health of It! website included the creation of a new program - Take 15 for Physical Activity. This is a web-based program designed to help Maryland families develop strategies for better living by making physical activity a part of their daily routine. The website provides practical tools that families, children, daycare providers, and educators can use to help children talk about sensitive issues like body image, and making exercise and physical activity fun. A well-received component of the website is a monthly calendar of suggested activities for early childhood, elementary, and secondary levels.

Get Fit Maryland™ kicked off its fourth year last fall! Get Fit Maryland stepped off the block for the first time in 2005 challenging Maryland adults to walk 10,000 steps a day. Get Fit Kids then debuted in 2007 challenging Baltimore City elementary school children to walk 13,000 steps a day. Get Fit Maryland™ is sponsored by a partnership between Merritt Athletic Clubs, The University of Maryland Medical Center and the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Join in the fun and register to step up your game to good health!
