About Find the Fun
Thousands of actively fun ideas all in one place.
Fun is in short supply these days. Let's blame all the "to dos" that happen in between your first cup of coffee and the late night news. It's no wonder we are spending less time outdoors, less time together with family and friends, and less time being active in any way.
FindtheFunNow.com is a tool to help you trade sedentary dead time for active fun – the kind that leaves you more relaxed and more energized. Got 20 minutes? An hour? All day? Want to bring a pet? Your kids? No kids? Find the Fun helps you find activities that fit your life.
We don't have to tell you how good it feels to feel good. Going for a walk with a friend, taking a dip, or playing on the beach resets your mental state (this is proven science) and improves your physical state in so many measurable ways. (Check out our Funology page to learn how.)
CPPW Pinellas is one of 50 Communities Putting Prevention to Work initiatives across the nation. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nationwide to address the nation's two leading causes of death and chronic disease: obesity and tobacco.
The Pinellas County program is focused on encouraging physical activity and healthy eating. Led by the Pinellas County Health Department and the Health and Human Services Council of Pinellas County, partners in the initiative include Pinellas County schools; the county government; St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo and the county's 20 other municipalities; the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County; the YMCA of the Suncoast; the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg; R'Club Child Care; Pinellas County Extension; the St. Petersburg Times, Clear Channel Communications, Bright House and the faith community.
Like most of the nation, two-thirds of Pinellas residents are overweight or obese. The result is an alarming uptick in diabetes (even among children), heart disease, and other obesity-related health conditions. Preventing obesity will save lives and help reduce the nation’s skyrocketing health-care costs.
And here’s the funny thing: Turns out the best prescription for change is good old-fashioned active fun. Ready to find your fun? Start here.
