6 weeks to get active, have fun in a friendly inter-force competition and support our fantastic Police Care UK charity. Don’t miss out, be part of it!Register now!
Now more than ever, the health and wellbeing of our officers and staff is paramount for serving our community and looking after ourselves.
We’re asking every member and supporter of every force across the UK to join our Get Active Challenge this summer, to get moving, feel better and help support the national Police charity who do so much for us.
We are the charity for serving and veteran police officers and staff, volunteers, and their families who have suffered any physical or psychological harm as a result of policing.
No you don't have to fundraise, this is completely up to you! There is an entry fee for the Get Active Challenge of £15 payable on signup. 50% of each sign up comes to Police Care UK so we are just happy to have you on board and joining the Challenge. Any fundraising you do is a bonus and is completely optional!
No! Everyone and anyone is welcome to join the challenge! There is no requirement for you to be in the police or connected to the police in any way.
You will be asked to choose a force to represent but which one is completely up to you. If you are in the police then we encourage your force to sign up, but you can still participate as an individual.
No. Some people might want to set a goal to work towards, but others might just want to log activity as they go. There is no set way to follow this challenge, it is YOUR challenge! Walk, swim, run, cycle, yoga, dance, dog walking... We don't mind what you do, just Get ACTIVE!
You can choose whichever force you want to represent. You might choose one that you work for, or volunteer for. It might be that you have a friend or relative that works in policing and you want to support their force! Or you might want to choose the force area that covers your hometown or favourite football team! However you want to support, it is totally up to you!
It's super easy! Participants need to use the Get Active website or App (coming soon) to log all activity. We encourage you to share your achievements on social media and use the hashtag to encourage the friendly competition!
Each activity logged has a point score calculated by a built in activity algorithm' There is an overall leaderboard for the highest point scores across all activities, but there is also a separate leaderboard per activity, so we will then see the top in running, cycling etc!
