The 3030 Essex Campaign

Published: Tuesday, 16th April 2019

For everyone to get physically active for 30 minutes a day for 30 days.

The 3030 Essex campaign aims to get everyone in the county physically active for 30 minutes a day for the 30 days of June and we hope you will join us to inspire your local community and put your club/organisation on the map! Check out how this works here: www.3030essex.com/clubsandorganisations/

It may be that you want to do a 3030 Takeover whereby you give your normal weekly activity a 3030 flavour. A change is as good as a rest and may just be what members need for a mid-year pep up.  It would be great if you could encourage your members and participants to become part of the campaign by signing up https://www.3030essex.com/jointhechallenge/   

Or why not run an Open Event during June to attract new members or volunteers? The campaign will certainly get the oxygen of publicity with a run on Heart Essex FM, a digital campaign with a specially created film and a county wide advertising campaign at bus shelters. We will also have Daily Guest Editors drawn from our community who will inspire the public to try new activities and sports on the 3030 Essex website and on the Active Essex social media channels.

A social media friendly idea is download the ‘1 second everyday’ app that allows you to capture one second a day in the life of your club to create your own film!  We’ll share on our social media too!

If you decide to do an Open Event – we will put the place and time on a special Open Event Map that will be promoted daily through social media.  Plus if you sign up you’ll have the chance to win one of 3 prizes:

•             £750

•             £500

•             £250

This can be spent on anything that will help promote physical activity – so perhaps new equipment or upskilling members… Simply log onto www.3030Essex.com 

All participating clubs will get a free ticket to our 3030Essex Obstacle Course – a family day out on Saturday June 29th at Thorndon Park in Brentwood.

 

Interested?  Just contact Jim Messenger, jim.messenger@activeessex.org , if you want to be part of 3030 Essex and we can arrange for t-shirts to be sent to you.
