As restrictions ease, it is important to keep up our good ‘Iso’ habits. If you’ve been walking and cycling places it’s important to think about how we can continue to incorporate active travel into our daily routine and avoid those single car trips. Our body, mind and the environment thanks us!

As many of us continue to work from home and some of us have children learning at home, our time spent on a daily commute can turn into a daily exercise opportunity. If you’re heading down to the local shops, heading back to work or taking children to and from school, consider alternatives to driving and walk or cycle instead.

Being active as a family or with friends or colleagues (in small socially distant groups or even virtually of course) is a great way to check in, stay healthy and get active.

This June, we are encouraging you to keep up your healthy habits and incorporate active travel (walking, running, cycling and scooting) into your daily routine. Simply walk, run, or cycle and aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day to join the challenge and donate your steps to your local school, sports club or workplace. Aiming for 10,000 plus steps per day can help boost your mood and immunity.

As restrictions ease, think twice about driving and walk or cycle instead.

Keep Mooving Greater Shepparton!


How to enter the Team Get Mooving Challenge

We know the pandemic has affected our community in many different ways – economically, financially, socially and impacted on our physical and mental health and wellbeing. This year’s challenge is about being together even when we are apart.

Individual and team entries of all ages and abilities are welcome.

Your whole office might be working from home, or you might not have seen your friends, family or sports buddies in a while, so get in touch and create a team of four to six people and compete against other teams in the competition. You don’t have to do your steps together, so this makes The Team Get Mooving Challenge a great team building activity and a way to stay healthy, happy, active and connected especially while you might not be face to face. Teams will be required to assign a team leader who will log the team's weekly steps

You can enter as an individual and challenge yourself to reach 10,000 steps per day and commit to active travel by walking or cycling to where you need to go.

Whether you are entering the Team Get Mooving Challenge as an individual or team, self-select a school, sports club or workplace to donate your ‘steps’ to win them some great prizes as well as prizes for yourself or your team.

For our serious individuals and teams who undertake high levels of physical activity and training we have an athlete competition for you to compete against each other.

Keep track of your daily steps with an activity tracker watch, app or smartphone. We will provide you with instructions on how you can convert your physical activity time (other than walking/running) from minutes to steps.

People of all ages and abilities are invited to participate.

The Challenge will commence on Monday 1 June 2020 and end on Sunday 28 June 2020.


Prizes

Prizes will be awarded to individual and team entries as well as schools, workplaces and sports clubs based on the number of steps donated to them.

There will also be random spot prizes announced throughout the challenge including a prize for the most creative team name and prizes for photos posted throughout the challenge using #TeamGetMooving

A weekly newsletter will be provided to all participants including updates on the leader boards and health and wellbeing tips to keep you mooving, particularly during the colder months ahead.
