Workplaces can energise and reward active employees this Spring!

Pushing Ahead has teamed up with Active Norfolk and BetterPoints to bring employees a fun and exciting way to get active and get rewarded this spring with the Spring into Action challenge.

During the month of May, employees in the Greater Norwich area and Great Yarmouth can win prizes for themselves and for their favourite charities simply by walking, running and cycling in these areas. When they log their activities on the free Betterpoints app, they will be in with a chance to win!

This challenge helps employees improve their health and well-being. Latest research shows that 27% of Norfolk adults do less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week, which impacts on mental health, anxiety and stress levels.

By signing up to this free challenge, workplaces can motivate their employees to be more active and help combat this worrying trend, and see the benefit of improved employee productivity and boosted morale.

There are nearly £300 of prizes to be won every week for employees that are logging their activities, £100 prize money for businesses to donate to their chosen charity, and one overall winner who logs the most activities can win £100 for themselves and £100 for their chosen charity.

Promotional materials will be supplied to eligible workplaces to help them get employees signed up to the challenge which kicks off on 1st May. Businesses are encouraged to sign up by 9th April.
