When? Through from the 20 November until the 6 December
Where? In houses, gyms, outdoor spaces and anywhere you can exercise!
Why? To help motivate, inspire and support people to access sport and exercise on their own level, but to be part of a team.
How? A combination of sport, exercise and sensory actions, converted into KM’s and added to the team total. Utilising as many aids and resources as needed, including those extra special sidekick supporters!
