NowWeMove - Get involved in No Elevator Day

We're calling on the StreetGames network to get involved in European No Elevators Day, spread the StreetGames message and do some fundraising.

Many of us are leading increasingly sedentary lifestyles, but simply switching from taking the lift to the stairs and making sure you get up and move regularly can reduce inactivity-related health risks. It can also help build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints, as well as maintain a healthy bodyweight. It can even lead to a weight loss of up to 2.7kg over a one year period.

I got involved with sport at a young age, starting gymnastics when I was seven or eight, maybe even a bit younger, representing Lancashire until I was 13 in four piece artistic gymnastics, asymmetric bar, beam, vault and floor.
