It’s hard to believe we’re heading towards the final week of the #WeActiveChallenge 2019 http://www.wecommunities.org/blogs/3483
It’s been going for 5 years now and it was the brain child of @jkfillingham of the @weAHPs community.
It’s a wonderful challenge once a year in the month of August to encourage us all to be a bit more active, and the competitive spirit of the Health professions battling it out for top place is fabulous! Usually the AHPs smash it, but this year it will be the year of the Nurses 😉👍 (no pressure, lets just make sure we have the right hashtag! #NursesActive plural 🤣). The wonderful @wilsoncat and @BevMatthewsRN have been having evening ‘check ins’ via DMs to assess our status and introduce new challenges such as ‘planking’ and headstands which has been a hit!
@finniejax even got her self in the local paper http://www.swlondoner.co.uk/swl-august-edition-2019/ for her planking efforts!
Trusts that have really embraced the challenge include Imperial, ULCH, Barts & East & North Herts, and there are many others too … the Salford AHPs and the Irish dancing was a real treat!! thank you all for setting the pace 🌟
Of course it always helps to get a badge along the way too and I’m rather delighted to have got my gold one! Check out your badge status via the ‘we gizmos’ along with all the activity at http://www.wegizmos.co.uk/Leaderboards/Show/7c485d90-6617-4085-aa62-49c2b879c128
We’re also encouraging team #NursesActive to give ParkRun a go on 24/8, we’re hoping to flood twitter with #NursesActive pics on Saturday 😉
if you’re still yet to try ParkRun why not google your local one, register to get a bar code and join in the fun 😉 more details here https://www.parkrun.org.uk/ Walking is totally allowed!
Huge thanks to Trudy @trudyward8 who is going to give ParkRun a go for the first time this Saturday!
Finally a MASSIVE thanks to #teamChinn that make all of this possible! Tree @AgencyNurse & Nick @NRCUK together, are the glue of this community, they are AWESOME in creating positive staff experiences and wellbeing, which in turn creates great patient experiences and improved outcomes, and that’s what we’re all about 😉
