You will be given access to Facebook and Instagram Lives to help reach women in real time and keep them encouraged and motivated to get active and enjoy it. There will also be the opportunity for #TakeoverTueday where an ambassador a month will be featured and have a chance to share a blog on their journey to help encourage others to join the change.

Move Cheerleader Ambassador

You are the everyday woman finding your active. By sharing your personal story and updates along the journey you will inspire others to follow in your footsteps. As a Move Cheerleader you champion the fact that there’s an activity for everyone.
