THOUSANDS of people across South Gloucestershire are taking part in an international competition which aims to promote healthy lifestyles, raise awareness into increasingly prevalent health issues and benefit the wider community.
The Active Lifestyle Centres are among nearly 800 facilities participating in Technogym’s ‘Let’s Move for a Better World’ campaign. Last year, over 141,000 people across 26 countries collected 482 million MOVEs – or physical movements – that are converted into points for gym equipment prizes. The challenge has grown significantly year-on-year, with 2018 set to be the biggest year yet.
Mark Crutchley, chief executive of Circadian Trust, the not-for-profit organisation which manages and operates the centres in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council said: “We’re thrilled to be taking part in the Let’s Move for a Better World campaign once again this year.
“Over 1,000 people took part across the five centres last year, with an incredible 4m MOVEs recorded between them. I have every faith that we can top last year’s total and bring home some equipment for our chosen causes.”
