Norfolk pledges its support to Games 4 Life….and so can you11 June 2012
Every participating household to receive a personal plan for a healthier future.
With the most exciting summer of sport in memory fast-approaching, thousands of families across Norfolk will this year be given personalised activity plans to help bring the county together and make us the most active Olympic host nation ever. The aim is to get 200’000 questionnaires completed by people across Norfolk to support increased activity and to really make a difference.
The Healthy living campaign Change4Life will be giving out millions of Games4Life ‘activity check’ questionnaires. Each individual that responds to the either free post questionnaire or the online version (even if there is more than one in each household) will receive their own personalised action pack, specific for adults or children, to help them get moving more and make the changes they need for a healthier, happier future.
A great tool for the summer holidays, the kids’ packs will include new activity ideas, stickers, tips and prizes, to help children get active. Also featuring new games and tools, the packs will keep boredom at bay over the long summer holidays. Advice for adults in their separate packs will also ensure that it’s not just kids who are getting up and about.
Children aged five to 18 should have 60 active minutes a day and adults should have 150 active minutes a week (younger children aged two to five are recommended to get 180 minutes a day). This summer will be the perfect time for the young and not-so-young to have fun getting these and feeling the benefits. Active Norfolk and our partners are here to support you and have lots of opportunities ready and waiting.
Pre-registration for questionnaires will be open from the 9th May on the Change4Life site before they are made available in June. For more information and to complete your free questionnaire just:
