Cheshire Young Carers have distributed Fitbit devices to a number of our young carers. These individuals were randomly selected to participate in a project designed to promote fitness and physical activity. In the new year, CYC will be setting these young people challenges and inviting them to activities that will encourage them to be more active. The project also provides a foundation for new friendships to be formed, also increasing the social activity of these young people.
The CYC team have also joined the Fitbit community, competing in ‘Workweek Hustle’s’ and ‘Weekend Warrior’ challenges, to see who can get in the most steps. Hannah and Alan’s scores were particularly impressive after their visit to London last weekend. We have taken our first steps to fitness, now it’s over to you!
