It is the day to celebrate the role that physical activity plays across Ireland. Facilities such as leisure centres, gyms, fitness centres and sports clubs are allowing folks to avail of free taster sessions, day passes, open gym or special offers.
Schools will be doing the annual Take on the Teacher Challenge. While workplaces can offer activity opportunities for employees.
