As part of our #LutonLetsGetActive campaign, we want to encourage residents and the local community to #GetUpGetMoving for 30 minutes a day. 30 minutes of exercise per day can help reduce stress, improve productivity and minimise the risk of long term health conditions.
June's monthly challenge is to #GetUpGetMoving for 30 minutes a day, please do send us your stories of how you have supported our #LutonLetsGetActive campaign.
Share your stories
We would love to hear your stories on how you've supported the return of sport and physical activity via our #LutonLetsGetActive campaign. Whether you have just started your journey to be active or have taken up a new activity, we would love to share your stories as part of our campaign to support other local residents to become active. It could be a photo of you and your friends and family enjoying a walk, your own story to getting active or your experience trying a new activity, email your stories and photographs (with the relevant consent) to HealthyLuton@luton.gov.uk
