The ECA’s launched a brand new program to promote the connection between health and video games.

Known as Gamers for Health, it’ll create a “destination” for healthy gaming, and will offer resources, information and tools to those interested in taking part in fitness gaming.

“With Gamers for Health, we’re creating a community of support and incentive, which is why some of us here at the ECA have already begun this program, and we’ll be offering incentives for members along the way,” said Jennifer Mercurio, ECA VP.

“We all know the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle, and video games can help us achieve our goals.”

Those who sign up on the Gamers for Health website can show the games they’ll be playing to reach their fitness goals.

Thanks, Gama.
