There’s no doubt we all know leading an active lifestyle makes you healthier and happier. But sometimes we all need that little nudge to get us started. That’s where our pledges come in.
By making a simple pledge you’re sharing how you aim to become more active. It can be as much or as little as you’re comfortable with. The important thing is that you’re taking steps towards a healthier you.
Making a pledge couldn’t be simpler. Just tell us who you are and what you aim to do for Active Wellbeing Week and beyond and you’ll automatically be entered into our exciting daily prize draws. The draws take place every day from Monday 1 July to Friday 5 July. We’ve got lots of awesome prizes to give away so stay turned to find out what you could win!
If that wasn’t enough, there is also an overall prize to celebrate the end of the week, where one lucky pledger will win £2,500 worth of holiday vouchers.
In the meantime, take a look at a sample of the thousands of pledges you made last year…
