Lorna Jane Clarkson has been advocating Active Living for over 20 years and launched Active Nation Day in 2012.
Held on the last Sunday of September, Active Nation Day is a day that stops the nation and asks the question "Are we doing enough?"
On this day, people of all ages are encouraged to put their health and fitness first and inspire others to do the same.
Since 1980, worldwide obesity has more than doubled, while 31% of the world's population languishes with insufficient exercise. As a result, heart disease has become the leading cause of death worldwide.
On Sunday 25th September, you can do something and show your family, friends and the world that 'Moving Matters' to you.
Active Nation Day will be held at Gasworks, 76 Skyring Terrace, Newstead on Sunday 25th September from 7am to 12noon.
Come and join in the fun events and interactive activities. Experience Active Living come to life at Gasworks Plaza. Grab a juice, take home some new activewear and sample some delicious MNB approved treats from the Lorna Jane Nourish Café. Why not grab some friends for breakfast after the event and try some of the delicious options at the Plaza!
9:00am - 12:00pm: Active Living @ Gasworks Plaza
Entry is FREE: all you need to bring is a towel, water bottle and good vibes!
You can also download the FREE Lorna Jane App and donate your move points to the movement and sign the petition and join the 60,000 voices who want a recognised Active Nation Day!
Spread the word and inspire the people in your life to make their move count. Invite them to join you at an Active Nation Day event or move together with the App. Post on social media @lornajaneactive #activenationday #yourmovematters
