Healthy, active lifestyles start at home, and the GO Run For Fun campaign would like to invite all parents to join on your child’s fitness journey.
We all know that modern technology has made staying indoors far too tempting. It’s our job to give television and video games a run for their money- by making it just as easy for parents to get their children into running, sport and playing outside.
The best thing about running is that it’s inexpensive and is a fundamental part of so many other exciting sports. If children catch the running bug early we know they tend to stick to it, so that an active and healthy lifestyle is enjoyed and not seen as a chore.
Because we’re often telling our kids to slow down and sit still, we need to balance that out with a bit of let loose and run free. What’s more, the social benefits from meeting and running with other children are long lasting.
GO Run For Fun is dedicated to inspiring children to get off the couch, get outside, and enjoy exercising. It's simple- but in an age of fast food, screens and convenient transport, so very important to setting up our children for fit and healthy lives.
We are currently raising funds to develop game changing teaching materials for children, and expand the reach of our fun run tour.
If your child has benefitted from a GO Run For Fun event and you'd like to contribute, all donations large or small are gratefully received.
