Governor M. Jodi Rell today said that Connecticut is joining the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports to encourage Connecticut residents to join the National President’s Challenge—a physical activity program designed to get America up and moving.

“The arrival of spring brings longer days and better weather,” Governor Rell said. “This is a great time for us all to make the changes in our lives that will lead to a healthier Connecticut and a healthier America. Engaging in a physically active lifestyle can benefit people of all ages, so I urge people to meet the President’s Challenge.”

The National President’s Challenge takes physical activity beyond the gym and into everyday life. All Americans aged 6 and older are encouraged to join the Challenge, be active five days a week and log their activity on a personal activity tracker. The National President’s Challenge ends May 15. Participants can register for the Challenge at www.presidentschallenge.org .

The theme for the National President’s Challenge 2008 is “A Healthier Nation: It’s Everyone’s Challenge.” Participants can join as individuals or create a group with friends, family, co-workers and students.
