  • Promote your existing programs using Move It Monday materials!

Pick the ones you like, download them, and use them to direct community members to your parks or physical activity programs!

  • Organize new Move It Monday programs! If you’re looking to develop new programs in your parks or recreation facilities, organize them on Mondays and brand them as your new Move It Monday physical activity programs with our free materials!
