Police Get Active Challenge 2021

Our Get Active Challenges are a great way to get active physically and mentally and enjoy all the benefits whilst helping raise funds to support UK police and their families.

Welcome to the 2021 Police Get Active Challenge!

From serving officers to police supporters, it’s time to get active and boost your wellbeing to show support and appreciation for our police forces across the UK. Take part any time between 28th June and 26th July 2021 and receive our NEW 2021 Challenge Coin!.

 

Whether you can commit to 1 week or more it is the taking part that counts!

SIGN UP TODAY, we will be in touch to remind you when its time to start. You will receive a special commemorative challenge coin at the end of the challenge.

Join in for just £15, with 50% going directly to our national police charity Police Care UK. You choose your challenge to take part in over four weeks, starting Monday 28th June – anything from a 1k walk to running a marathon or committing to daily acts of kindness.

Don't just take our word for it!

What is the Police Get Active Challenge?

Now more than ever, the health and wellbeing of our emergency services is paramount for serving our community and looking after ourselves.

The Blue Police Get Active challenge is a friendly inter-force competition for all the family! You don't have to be in the police to take part, you just have to want to Get Active!

All activity you do counts and is tracked on national leaderboards with individual and collective mileage and fundraising targets! Run, walk, cycle, swim, online/offline classroom, weights, dog walk, treadmill, anything goes except being sedentary!

Fundraising is a critical part of all our Get Active Challenges and helps us make sure both serving and former colleagues who suffer harm, and their families, have someone to turn to when things get tough.

 

LOG ACTIVITY

From 28th June you can start logging your activity. Don’t worry, we will remind you when it’s time to start your challenge and support you with ideas and encouragement.

EARN YOUR CHALLENGE COIN!

At the end of the challenge, we'll send your commemorative Police Care UK Get Active 2021 challenge coin.

What is a Get Active Challenge?

Get Active Challenges are online active campaigns for companies, charities and individuals that centre around physical and mental well being, team engagement and charity fundraising through physical activities.

How do I participate?

You participate by entering our Get Active Challenge using this website. You will be charged £15 entry fee, with 50% going to Police care UK. The charity would appreciate any additional donations you can make, by donating you are making sure that police and families in need can access the help and care they need.

Our sign up platform will open soon. In the meantime you can register your interest in the challenge and we'll let you know when you can start to Get Active!

 

How long will the challenge run for?

4 weeks, the challenge will run from Monday 28th June to Monday 26th July 2021. Whether you can commit to 1 week or more is up to you, it's the taking part that counts!

Can I take part in this whilst social distancing?

Yes – absolutely. It is essential that we all follow the government rules which are available here.

Do I have to fundraise?

No, there is no requirement to do any fundraising for this challenge at all, unless you want to! Of course, Police Care UK would appreciate any additional donations you can make, and by donating you are making sure that police and families in need can access the help and care they need. Fundraising is not a requirement, however.

How do I setup a fundraising page?

If you wish, you can choose to fundraise as part of your challenge by setting up a Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving page and ask family, friends, colleagues and workplaces to support you. There is no requirement to fundraise but if you do the money you raise will go directly towards improving the lives of police officers harmed through their policing role, and their families.

When will I receive my coin?

In general, we aim to dispatch your beautifully commissioned coin to you within 2 weeks of the end of the challenge.

How can I appear in the gallery?

To appear in our gallery please tag your instagram images with #PoliceGetActive. Please note that it can take a few hours before your images appear.

What does the sign up fee cover?

50% of your sign up fee goes directly to Police Care UK, the other 50% goes to Get Active Challenges Ltd towards the cost of the challenge platform, mobile apps, transaction fees and the challenge coin.
