Being active as a family or with friends or colleagues (in small socially distant groups or even virtually of course) is a great way to check in, stay healthy and get active.

This October we are encouraging you to discover the healthy benefits of regular physical activity by incorporating walking, running, cycling or any kind of exercise into your daily routine. Aiming for 30 minutes of physical activity or 10,000 plus steps each day can help boost your mood and immunity.

Keep Mooving Greater Shepparton!


How to enter the Team Get Mooving Challenge

We know the pandemic has affected our community in many different ways – economically, financially, socially and impacted on our physical and mental health and wellbeing. This year’s challenge is about being together even when we are apart.

Individual and team entries of all ages and abilities are welcome.

Some of your office might be working from home, or you might not have seen your friends, family or sports buddies in a while, so get in touch and create a team of four to six people and compete against other teams in the competition. You don’t have to do your steps together, so this makes The Team Get Mooving Challenge a great team building activity and a way to stay healthy, happy, active and connected especially while you might not be face to face. Teams will be required to assign a team leader who will log the team's weekly steps

You can enter as an individual and challenge yourself to reach 10,000 steps per day and aim for 30 minutes of physical activity each day.

Keep track of your daily steps with an activity tracker watch, app or smartphone. We will provide you with instructions on how you can convert your physical activity time (other than walking/running) from minutes to steps.

People of all ages and abilities are invited to participate.

The Challenge will commence on Monday 11 October 2021 and end on Sunday 7 November 2021.


Prizes

Prizes will be awarded to individual and team entries based on the number of steps taken.

There will also be weekly random draw prizes announced throughout the challenge plus a prize for the most creative team name and for photos posted throughout the challenge using #TeamGetMooving

A weekly newsletter will be provided to all participants including updates on the leader boards and health and wellbeing tips to keep you mooving.
