Exercise is a wonder drug to help many of us live longer, healthier and happier lives... However, over a third of adults and six in ten young people in Greater Manchester are not active enough to benefit their health. This lack of movement is the fourth leading cause of premature death in the UK.
At GreaterSport, we want to change these results by increasing the dose of movement into everyone’s everyday lives. Just 30 minutes a day can make a huge difference. Our ambition as a charity is to enable two million people to be active by 2021. And by 2025, our aim is to support the GM Moving ambition of 75% of residents to be on the move making us the most active region in the UK.
Our challenge is simple: to change lives through physical activity.
