The Governor's Council on Fitness (GCOF) is joining forces with Governor Sam Brownback to promote physical
activity by launching Get Active Kansas! to help improve fitness and address the rising rates of obesity
in Kansas. This new initiative is designed to promote a healthier and more vigorous Kansas through local
efforts coordinated through school, government, business and health sectors and engaging all ages of Kansans.
The goal of this campaign is to help Kansans realize the tremendous benefits of physical activity and to take action to achieve a greater level of physical activity. Specifically, Kansans will become more physically active, achieving 30 minutes of physical activity (60 minutes for kids!) most days of the week.
