The Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports was founded to promote the health benefits of physical activity. Those who are physically active have lower rates of heart disease, stroke, obesity, certain types of cancer (i.e., colon and breast), osteoporosis, and depression as compared to those who are inactive.
To this end, the Governor’s Council endorses local, regional, and state events that are consistent with the Council’s mission to Get Michigan Moving. The review committee considers application criteria related to the safety and well-being of participants, qualifications of event organizers and officials, proper emergency procedures, and maximum participation opportunities.
If you are an event organizer, and would like to submit your event for consideration as an endorsed event, print and fill out this application and fax it to Tricia Fraas at 517-347-8145.
