Website / newsletter copy
For those of you who represent an organisation, we'd urge you to share the #RightToBeActive campaign with your audiences via your website and newsletters. We've prepared some text which you can use to do this, but feel free to tailor it as needed:
Inactivity is killing our children and we demand that every child is given the fundamental #RightToBeActive.
80% of girls and 77% of boys are not active enough to stay healthy and one in five children are classified as obese before they reach secondary school.
Sport and recreation can help solve many of the biggest threats facing our children. Making it part of their daily lives will make them healthier and happier.
That is why we are proud to be supporting the #RightToBeActive campaign and we encourage you to join us.
Together we can create a better, healthier and happier future for our children.
