Change4Life family fit challenge 2011 for the East Riding of Yorkshire

Win a family holiday….. could you take on our family fit challenge?

NHS East Riding of Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire Council are working together to support Change4Life and promote healthier living by launching the family fit challenge 2011, and they are now looking for families to come forward to take on a New Year challenge with a difference.

This competition is targeted at families of all ages and across generations, regardless of their current health and fitness status. It is looking for families that are committed to making healthier choices and changes in the New Year, with a chance to win a family holiday, 4 nights self-catering accommodation in Yorkshire for up to 4 people.

Dawn Branton Public Health Lead for nutrition and physical activity said  “It doesn’t matter if you are a family who hasn’t exercised or thought about eating healthier before, or if you already have a level of fitness and healthy eating in your life, the scheme is open to families of all levels of fitness.”

We are looking for 4–6 families who live in the East Riding to take part in the challenge. The families will need to be contactable throughout February and March, and agree to take part in publicity to spread the Change4Life messages.  At the end of the challenge a panel of judges will determine which family has excelled overall and award the holiday.  For more information come along to our launch at Beverley Market on Saturday 8 January and look out for the Change4Life vehicle.  

You can apply by completing a form telling us in no more 250 words why you could be our family fit challengers for 2011. We are looking for fun, innovative ways in which your family can get fit together and keep fit!

The family fit challenge forms part of a three month long Change4Life campaign that will see a number of different initiatives taking place throughout the East Riding. These aim to encourage both young children and adults to make simple changes towards a healthier lifestyle through fun exercise activities, practical healthy eating advice and support and much more.

The launch of the Change4Life campaign will be taking place this Saturday 8 January 2011 at Saturday Market Place, Beverley, starting with a healthy cooking demonstration.  There will also be members of the NHS East Riding Public Health team on hand to, give help and advice on healthy eating and exercise.
