What is the Moving Matters Campaign?

Moving Matters is a campaign supporting CDC’s Active People, Healthy Nation℠ initiative. The objective of the Moving Matters campaign is to increase awareness of the benefits of physical activity, build self-efficacy to be more physically active, and prompt more physical activity among adults who are insufficiently active and inactive.

As you probably know, increased physical activity can improve health and quality of life and reduce health care costs. Physical activity can help reduce the risk of at least 20 chronic diseases and provide effective treatment for many of these conditions. Other potential benefits include better school performance and improved military readiness

The campaign provides messaging and materials to encourage increased physical activity. We are using multiple media and dissemination channels to help Black and Hispanic women between the ages of 18 through 44 years old, including moms, become more physically active. This strategy includes everything from helping people understand the benefits of physical activity to showing how to fit it into their day while overcoming barriers.

Become a Moving Matters Partner!

There are many ways you can support the campaign through your existing communication efforts—everything from sharing social media messages to using our web banners to including campaign messages in your newsletters.

We’ll be here to support you along the way, providing easy-to-use messaging and materials. Contact us to learn more!

Moving Matters for Your Health

Taking care of yourself is one of the most important things you can do for you and your family. One way to do that is to get regular physical activity. Increased physical activity can improve your sleep, reduce stress, and lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, some cancers, and type 2 diabetes.

We are joining other local and national organizations in supporting the Moving Matters campaign, part of the Active People, Healthy Nation℠ initiative, to help promote the benefits of physical activity, encourage people to find small ways to incorporate movement into their day, and remind people that physical activity can be fun.

Visit cdc.gov/MovingMatters to learn more about the campaign and explore ways to get moving!
