Move4Summer is back for summer 2021.
The campaign has 2 aims: getting children, young people and families to spend more time outdoors and be active, alongside those people who currently don’t do any activity to start doing a little bit of activity each day.
The campaign is all about celebrating the opportunities across the Black Country to be active and will provide opportunities, suggestions and activities for you to be active daily.
Move4Summer campaign will encourage people of all ages from all backgrounds and abilities to take part.
We know that those first steps to being more active can be the hardest ones to take. However, those small changes to lifestyle are the ones that can make the most difference to your health.
#EveryDayYourWay is about making daily changes to your routines that help you to become a bit more active. That could mean going up and down the stairs during an advert break, walking to the shops instead of driving or simply standing up when speaking on your phone. Those small changes can be the start to a healthier summer.
Keep an eye on our social media as we will be sharing lot's of activities using the hashtag: #EveryDayYourWay
The Black Country Rainbow Book of activities is a huge part of the Move4Summer campaign and we have produced a new edition of the Black Country Rainbow Book for this summer.
In addition to the Rainbow Book, there are all sorts of activities available for children and their families to get involved with over the school holidays in your local area:
