Event:
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 Federation Square on Sunday 25th September from 7am to 12noon.

Come and join in the fun events and interactive activities; there will be FREE move classes, celebrity appearances, samples bags and giveaways!

  • 7:00AM -8:00AM: Registration Opens

  • 8:00AM - 8:45AM: Move Class

  • 8:45AM - 9:00AM: Guest Speaker

  • 9:00AM - 9:30AM: Yoga Class

  • 7:00AM: 12:00PM: Active Living Markets - A one stop shop for Active Living and the perfect post-workout reward for our sporty sisters and brothers who sweated it out and took part in the Active Nation Day class.

    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!
