Just Move It (JMI) is a North American campaign promoting physical activity for Indigenous People. JMI successfully engages communities toward an ambitious goal: to get 1 million Indigenous People moving.
Preventable chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, are hitting Indigenous populations at staggering rates. By expanding physical activity as part of a community lifestyle, a foundation of wellness can be built to fight this trend.
Many Indigenous communities are already taking steps to promote physical activity. JMI aims to strengthen these efforts by sharing what is working and building networks of Indigenous communities and programs.
Since 2005, JMI Partner programs from across the US and Canada connect online to access resources and a vast network of support. JMI Partners support and learn from each other by sharing their local events and experiences, and by adapting each other's tools and approaches to fit their own unique communities.
