Have you heard of the Premier’s Active Challenge? It is an initiative of Victorian Government, to promote healthy and active lifestyles, encouraging Victorians to participate in a fun way.



How does it work?

In April, Victorians are asked to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. By participating, you can log your daily pursuits online via the Active April Activity Tracker. You can then follow your progress throughout the month, as well as create and join teams if you want to, which leads to rewards for your virtual Trophy Cabinet.

How to register

Go to the Active April website on www.activeapril.vic.gov.au and register for free.
Registrations stay open until April 30.
