Let’s Get Kids Moving

Let’s Get Kids Moving - 500,000 Challenge

Premier Foundation is launching the “Let’s Get Kids Moving” campaign this summer. Research has found that children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds see an 18 times faster fall in their fitness levels over the summer holidays than their more affluent counterparts. (Check out the research from ukactive for more on this issue). With limited financial means, children from these communities are missing out on regular and structured activities in the summer holidays due to the cost being out of reach, with the alternative for children to stay indoors in front of screens.

kids on the moveSport is a conduit for not only better physical and mental health, but it can also build personal development and life skills such as teamwork, communication, and resilience, helping set children on a path for future success. This summer, you can help support those children who need it. We are running the 500,000-step challenge. Take one step towards a healthier you and one step forward for our poorest children across England. Over seven weeks of the summer holidays, we challenge you to meet the recommended guidance on a step count of 10,000 steps every day and meet the total of 500,000 steps this summer holidays. 

Start your fitness journey, get active with your friends and family, and at the same time raise life-changing funds for children like Cody. With a single parent who works, our free Summer Holiday Camps help children like Cody have a fun, safe, active holiday, learn new sports they've never tried, meet great people, and get a free healthy meal each day.  

kids on the moveIncreasing your step count doesn’t need to be boring. Be creative - dance, walk with friends, run with the dog, push the buggy around a park, or even play some games outside with your children! The challenge is for everyone; you decide what works best for you. So we call upon all the mums, dads, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, grandparents, and friends. And, of course, for you to get behind kids this summer, help get them moving and raise funds for them to take part in free summer holiday camps next year in 2023!
