LANSING, Mich. - April 30, 2020 - PRLog -- Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) and Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan present All Children Exercise Simultaneously (ACES) Day on May 6.

Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world exercise together to promote proper health and fitness habits on this day. ACES was created by physical education teacher Len Saunders as a method of motivating children to exercise and takes place on the first Wednesday in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. It has been labeled as "the world's largest exercise class" by the media.

Because this year's statewide event has been cancelled due to the pandemic, MFF is providing virtual resources to inspire families to be active that include fun work out videos featuring yoga, dance, and calisthenics, as well as Adventure Around Michigan, a creative game to get children moving with a Michigan theme. Families are encouraged to post photos of their ACES Day activities on social media by tagging @MichiganFitness @FarmBureauInsuranceMichigan using #ACESDayMI2020

Physical activity at an early age, such as walking or bicycling, helps reduce stress, heart disease, diabetes, and other obesity-related illnesses. With many families staying home to help reduce spread of COVID-19, ACES Day offer families the opportunity to be healthy while learning about safe bicycling, walking and ways to connect as a family through physical activity.
