This week we are launching our summer Race to health challenge in partnership with Southwark Libraries as a way of keeping families active during the summer. We would really appreciate if this could be circulated to all groups and cascaded to local families.
Race to Health at home: The grizzly bear who lost his GRRRRR!
3 August – 30 August
What is Race to Health?
Race to Health is an award winning online physical activity challenge that helps children and their families to be more physically active at home as part of a team – in this case a library team. Each participant will pick a Southwark library that they will compete for to try and become part of the Southwark Race To Health Champions!
Please click here for more information and instructions on how to register, or alternatively keep reading for more details.
Please adhere to current social distancing guidelines and government advice.
How it works
The game theme is following Fred’s journey from the classic book, The grizzly bear who lost his GRRRRR! (by Rob Bidduloph). Each minute of physical activity completed by children and their families will be converted into miles and will contribute to their chosen library teams total. This helps Fred to move around a game map visiting some cool places and making new friends! The wining library will be the one with the highest total active minutes completed and will win receive £250 decathlon vouchers.
Children and their families need to log their physical activity minutes on our fun interactive web site which provides tips on how to increase your daily physical activity. Whilst on the website children will be able to track their own activity progress, and compare this to other members of the same library team. Children and families will also be able to customise their own page, collecting medals and points.
Once completed, children will be able to download their own personalised participation certificate and has a digital trophy appear in their trophy cabinet!
