"Being active is transformative.

2020 has provided so many challenges for so many people in so many ways. It has had a profound impact on all our lives but has also seen inspirational examples of how we can adapt and remain resilient.

We have seen the importance of being physically active like never before. The importance of community, of the sense of belonging and the positive impact of strong personal relationships are also more prominent.

We know that not only sport but also being physically active does have a huge impact on individuals and provides an opportunity to thrive."
