Take Ten #StepOutChallenge

Monday 8th February 2021

In December 2020, Active Calderdale launched the Take Ten Step Out Challenge. Why? Our answer is simple: it's now more important than ever to get active for our physical and mental health, but the dark winter months and COVID restrictions have made it challenging for many people across the borough.

The Step Out Challenge was a campaign that celebrated something you can do throughout the pandemic – go for a walk outside! The challenge we set for people taking part was to step out of the house every day for at least 10 minutes.

November was a huge month for Active Calderdale, as we submitted our request for our first round of LDP funding, which will be instrumental in the rollout of system change for the borough. A significant amount of effort has been put into the application, and subsequent visits from Sport England. That’s not all that we got up to of course, our work continues to bring the systems of Calderdale together to create the most active borough in the North.
