How many days until National Get Up Day?


National Get Up Day on February 1 offers the opportunity to share inspirational stories of perseverance. The day reminds us to pick up ourselves when we have fallen and give it (no matter what may happen) another day!

History of National Get Up Day

Figure Skating USA established National Puberty Day on February 1, 2017, to provide a platform to celebrate Get Up stories in communities around the country and to call on those who another stood up. As part of the opening ceremony, the world was encouraged to share Get Up stories a week before the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

In 2017, the Registry at the National Day Calendar announced the celebration would be held on February 1 every year.

February 1 marks the official end of National Skating Month (January) as rinks across the country bring communities together to experience the joys and benefits of skating. One of the first lessons every figure skater learns is how to fall and get up. However, this day is not just about skating. It's a celebration of the Get Up spirit that applies to every aspect of life. The day inspires others through stories, photos, videos and social media.

More importantly, February 1st reminds us all to get up when we fall. We never know when our efforts to find a goal or overcome an obstacle will encourage others to do the same. Whether you find inspiration on or off the ice, in the classroom, through a co-worker, or in your neighborhood, share your get up story on National Get Up Day!

How to celebrate National Get Up Day

Encourage someone you know. Rarely does anyone celebrate failures. However, every time we get up and try again, we stand on a mountain of failure. That's how we learn and achieve our goals. So share the moments when you got up and persevered. Keep moving forward and up. What makes you stand up? Share your inspiration using #NationalGetUpDay on social media.


National Get Up Day has been observed annually on February 1st.
