Awareness Month Nomination: National Athletic Month
There are a lot of obese and overweight people in the United States in fact 65 percent of American adults are overweigh. National Athletic Month will be a month dedicated to helping people lose weight and get active. National Athletic Month will be held in May because it is very nice in May and in most places there is no snow. Throughout this month there will be different events such as races and a cook off to show off your skills at cooking healthy food and learn how to cook healthy foods. This month will be a good start to begin to lose weight and get healthy. This is a good to begin to get in shape even if you are not over weight.
Athletic month is not all about getting fit and healthy. It is about playing sports or becoming the athlete you want to be. Athletic month would be a great time to start playing and learning about a new sport you have never played before. You could support you favorite athlete or athletic team. People could wear your jerseys and other team merchandise. Also you could go to your favorite team’s events such as a soccer game or a football game. Cities during this month could hold events like races and sporting events. During athletic month there will be a marathon on the last day in the capital of every state. The 50 people that win the marathon will win a trip to Washington
Dc to run a marathon with the president who ever wins that race will win the prize of saying that beat the president in a marathon.
All the sporting teams will play during this month most wont play real game because it may be there off season. Also if you favorite team is in the off season they will have small events like autograph signings and practice events to let people watch. The tickets to these events will be affordable on every budget. If you can’t afford tickets to your favorite’s team’s events now is a good chance to see them play. There cloud be fund raisers for disease and other things. The goal would be for Nike or Adidas or another company to sponsor the month.
