Description

The Everyday Active 'Travel Your Way' Challenge runs for 4 weeks from 1 - 31 May 2024 and it's all about swapping motorised transport for two legs, two wheels or four wheels, if you're a wheelchair user. If you walk, run, cycle or use a self-propelled wheelchair, instead of using motorised transport for all or part of your journey, for functional reasons such as, travelling to work, to the local shops or to a leisure activity, it can be logged as Active Travel on your activity tracker dashboard.

Making active travel choices is an easy way to fit activity into your day and can help reduce the risk of obesity and many chronic diseases, improve mental health and your overall well-being. There are so many benefits of Active Travel, we hope you'll join us for this new Challenge. All participants will be entered into the end of Challenge Prize Draw so everyone is in with a chance of being rewarded for their efforts. Good Luck!

To take part, all you have to do is sign up to Kent's free Activity Tracker and start logging your everyday activities and active travel from 1 May 2024 - 31 May 2024.

As an added incentive and because May is national walking month, there is an overall Challenge Target of 40 MILLION steps in May. Every activity you log and every point you earn, will go towards this overall target so we're all in this together!
