Don't Get the Sits, Be Heart Healthy
Sunday 29 April to Sunday 6 May 2018 is Heart Week and this year, Heart Week will focus on the importance of physical activity in reducing the prevalence and impact of risk factors for heart disease. It's about empowering Australians to get moving.

Did you know that over 50% of Australians are not active enough, that almost 2 in 3 adults and 25% of children are overweight or obese, and that 5,000 die each year from physical inactivity? We simply spend far too much time sitting or being inactive.

This year, the Heart Foundation campaign is 'Don't get the sits' to encourage us to get moving and keep our heart strong just like any other muscle in our body.
