Get Fit, Franklin County is a movement; a call to action to get moving!

Only 20% of our County’s residents reported having exercised for 30 minutes, 5 days per week.          Our goal is to increase that number.

We encourage all community members to adopt more active lifestyles for healthier lives. Any increase in physical activity is a step towards a healthier you!
