The Let’s Move Community Challenge

Introduction (We are stronger together)

We are challenging the Hyndburn Community to band together and support each other through these next few months. Let’s get moving, and show just what our community is capable of!

2020 was a year of uncertainty, and we want to ensure that 2021 is a brighter more positive experience for everyone in our community. Hyndburn has been subject to the most strict restrictions for an extended amount of time, and in-spite of this we have managed to stay connected and supported through it all.

The Hyndburn Hub, supported by The Volunteer Hub, have been key factors in supporting our more vulnerable members of society during the pandemic. However, we now need to look at supporting everyone into fitness and wellbeing activities, to ensure our spirits are kept up and we maintain healthy lifestyles.

The Challenge (From nothing to something, something to more)

The Let’s Move Challenge is simple! We are supporting the Hyndburn community to become a Healthier Hyndburn by moving more anyway you can. From nothing to something, something to more.

Anything goes! From gentle walks and jogging to marathons and cycling. For those who cannot leave your home, you can join in with home exercises such as; garden steps, seated feet tapping and walking up and down the stairs!

We will update an interactive map with your steps every Friday to show how far we can travel as a community. Can we get down to Cornwall? Or will we cross the oceans to distant lands?
