Dunottar School Get Active Challenge
Join the team - take part in our first Dunottar School Get Active Challenge!!
Dunottar School Get Active Challenge!!
This January we are launching our first Dunottar School Get Active Challenge, a 31-day campaign designed to inspire you and your family to start 2020 in the best way possible.
This is not about being the fittest or the fastest, it’s simply about moving more for 31 days to reap a long-list of wellbeing benefits including increased energy, better concentration and a happier, more stable mood.
Sign up to the initiative with your family and pledge to travel 15 miles over the month – you get to decide how it’s done, you can walk, swim, run or cycle the distance.
Where the money goes
If 500 of us take part collectively, we’ll cover 7,500 miles. That’s all the way to Detroit and back again!!
The entry fee is £15 per person – this includes a stunning medal, the chance to win some additional prizes and a donation for East Surrey YMCA, our selected charity partner for this project.
£5 from every entry will also be invested back into the school and contributed towards equipment for a new school gym. Due for installation in 2020, the school gym will be equipped with a selection of cardio and free weights, available for pupils to use before, during and after school with off-peak access for parents.
How it Works
Sign up to the Dunottar School Get Active Challenge online. Each entry costs £15 for each participant and you can add an optional donation at checkout.
After checkout, you will be prompted to register an account so that you are able to login for unrestricted access to the site. Please note only one person in a family needs to create an account. This account user will be able to add activity data for an unlimited number of paid participants (e.g. all of your family) using the ‘Submit Activity’ tab.
We’re relying on your integrity, please only upload genuine activity, don’t be tempted to cheat.
We’d also love it if you support each upload with an image on your Insta account using the hashtag #DunottarGetActive – this can be a photo of a group activity, your activity tracker (e.g. Fitbit, Garmin or Apple Watch screen shot) or a spectacular view (whatever takes your fancy). We’ll share as many of your photos as we can on the school’s Insta feed.
Once you have completed your 15 miles and submitted all your evidence – your challenge is complete!! Sit back, rest those legs and enjoy your exclusive Dunottar School Get Active Challenge medal!
