An international association recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), The Association for International Sport for All (TAFISA) seeks to bring joy, health, social interaction, integration and development to communities and citizens around the globe through the promotion of and access to Sport for All and physical activities.
TAFISA World Challenge Day is one such initiative which, open to communities of any size and from any country, encourages friendly international competition among communities across the world. The objective is for communities of similar size to compete against each other and motivate as many people as possible in their respective regions to be physically active for 15 minutes in a single day, in order to raise awareness of and enthusiasm for healthy and active living.
