WALKING MONTH

May is walking month, and this year is no different, as Active Newcastle have set some great challenges for you to get involved in.  Take a look at the Active Newcastle Facebook page for daily updates on the challenges

Challenges 

The Tik Tok Challenge- 
Active Newcastle community partners and public to create a Tik Tok video (tunes to include walk or move in the lyrics) share these on the Love Newcastle Tik Tok
Each day for the 31 days of May we will reveal something on the ‘bingo card’ for you to spot or find on your daily walk.  At the end of the 31 days the aim is to have found all the items on your walks.  We would ask you to share your videos or selfies on the Love Newcastle platforms (Tik Tok, Instagram) as well as  Active Newcastle Facebook and Twitter

Walk Everyday in May 
Active Newcastle have been inspired by Captain Tom Moore’s determination to keep walking and in recognition of Walking Month our team have set a challenge for each of us to “walk every day during the month of May”. 
We are personally inviting each and every one of you to join us in this challenge.  It can be as flexible as you want.  You can do this as an individual or challenge your friends/family and support each other.   Walking up and down the stairs, taking part in a Live Active Newcastle session, playing in the garden with the kids, or walking the dog, all count towards your daily total

Walk Nominate Donate 
The ‘Walk, Donate, Nominate’ challenge takes the walking everyday in may challenge a little further.
The donate element doesn’t necessarily have to be a financial donation, it could be as simple as donating a smile or helping to put your neighbours bin out. Financial donations can be made to Citylife Line, or any other charity of choice.
People can then nominate someone they know to take part in the challenge, this can be done on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Tik Tok using the hashtag #walkdonatenominate.


More information about the challenges can be found on the Active Newcastle Facebook page
