Sport Your Trainers

12th March 2012 - Sign Up To Win

Sport Your Trainers is a national Campaign which encourages everyone across the country to wear their trainers on Commonwealth Day – 12th March.

We want everyone from all over Scotland, whether they are at home, work or play, to show their support for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games by ditching their normal footwear and wearing their trainers for the day.

Last year 820,000 people got involved in the campaign and this year we want more organisations to take part, we want all - schools, businesses and Games Partners to be involved. If you are keen to get your staff behind the Commonwealth Games this is a great

engagement opportunity.

This year we also have a further challenge, we want organisations to Step Up, by creating a healthy challenge. Participants can Step Up and create an individual or group pledge here. This pledge could be simply wearing their trainers for the day on 12th March, taking the stairs at work or going for a walk at lunchtime, staff can make up any type of pledge they want.

There will be no cost and we also have some great prizes on offer:

  •  Glasgow 2014 Opening Ceremony tickets
  •  Limited edition trainers
  •  Official Glasgow 2014 shoelaces

Sign up now and Sport Your Trainers!
