15/01/2021 - Show your heart some love this February with our walking challenge
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the heart is a symbol used to express our feelings for our loved ones – but it’s also important to love our own heart and keep it healthy.
That’s why this February we are inviting all businesses in Luton to challenge their staff to join in with our virtual Love Your Heart Walking Challenge, taking place from 15 February to 12 March 2021. It’s also the perfect opportunity to create good habits and stay motivated, especially with lockdown still in full swing.
To take part people will need to form a virtual team of three – or they can enter individually, as they compete against other teams or individuals from companies within Luton.
The challenge aims to encourage everyone to increase their walking so they feel healthier, have fun, improve their wellbeing, and stay connected with their colleagues. Participants can walk anywhere – to the shops, around the park, and for as long or short a time as they like. Those self-isolating are also welcome to take part as long as they have access to a treadmill or some outdoor space (like a garden).
There will be both group and individual prizes which will include vouchers from a range of high street retailers. There’s also a prize of a year’s membership with Active Luton (winner must be a Luton resident) for best photo taken out on a walk, so make sure to have a look around for anything worth capturing on camera!
Sign up by Thursday 11 February.
