Freedom Leisure in Crawley is challenging children to stay active through the summer holidays by making a pledge to be as active as they can.

Youngsters aged four to 14 taking part will receive a fitness diary in which to record their activities from now until September 5.

Freedom Leisure operates K2 Crawley , a leisure centre, on behalf of Crawley Borough Council.

Each diary has 10 spaces to record the chosen activity, which must be at least 30 minutes in duration.

On completing the first 10 activities, children will receive a free voucher for activities like swimming or badminton at their local Freedom Leisure centre.

If a second diary is completed they will receive an activity voucher and a small prize, and finally, if children complete a third diary, they will receive an exclusive Junior Summer Fitness Challenge medal and certificate.

The aim of the challenge is to complete 30 physical activities throughout the course of the summer holiday.

Grown ups will also be able to join in on the fun, as this year’s challenge also includes special family activities which can be found in each diary.

Although there is no obligation to do so, children can complete the activities at K2 Crawley.

Nyssa Jackson, Freedom Leisure area manager, said: “We want to get children to have fun whilst getting active, so any activity that gets children up out of their seat and making a physical effort will count as a legitimate activity.

“We hope to see as many loc al children as possible coming to the centre to pick up their first fitness diary, they don’t need to be a Freedom Leisure member to take part.

Children can register online at www.freedom-leisure.co.uk, or pick up their first fitness diary from K2 Crawley.
