The EVENT for 2012 is now closed, but keep your eye out for the 2013 challenge 😉 You can find out who won and what they did here.
The Otagothon 2012 Challenge is being issued by Later Life Training to Otago Exercise Programme (OEP) Leaders and their groups as a means of involving their participants in the unique opportunities in 2012 to celebrate Active Ageing and participation in physical activity. The Challenge will take place across the UK and timed to coincide with the 8th World Congress on Active Ageing being held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow from the 13th – 17th August 2012.
The Otagothon Challenge is one of a number of 2012 Challenge events taking place during the summer of 2012 designed to involve older people in a range of physical activity challenges promoted by the organisers of the 8th World Congress on Active Ageing, Glasgow Caledonian University and the BHF National Centre for Physical Activity and Health at Loughborough University.
Your Otagothon 2012 Challenge can take place on any day during that week, but Wednesday 15th August 2012 has been specifically chosen as the UK Otagothon 2012 Challenge Day and timed to coincide with the one day theme of Falls and Fractures, Balance and Bone Health Day at the World Congress on Active Ageing.
This resource will provide you with ideas and information about how to become involved in the Otagothon 2012 Challenge and inspire your participants. It also provides information on how you can register your event and let us know of the success of your event post challenge.
