The Challenge

More than 50% of Australians miss out on the exercise they need. Their heart health could be at risk.

When you get active more often, you are less likely to have a heart attack or to develop heart disease. Regular physical activity helps to control other heart health risks, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and being overweight. 

Got an idea to inspire your community to get moving? Share it with us!

We encourage entries from schools, tertiary institutions, councils and community groups as well as culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Come up with a new project, partnership, product or process to make a difference.

Create an idea to meet the needs of your chosen community and make it easier for people to exercise.
