In May 2022, St Helens Borough Council will be launching a new 26 day challenge for St Helens called buddyboost, aimed at encouraging residents and workers across the borough to be more active as part of a group of friends, family or colleagues supporting each other along the way.

Starting on Sunday 1st May and running for the whole month, buddyboost encourages you to do at least 26 minutes of physical activity a day for 26 days in the month. You choose the activities you want to do and the group of people you’d like to support each other with!

After you’ve completed your 26 minutes of activity, you log it on the free buddyboost app. You can complete the buddyboost challenge on your own or with a buddy group of friends/family/colleagues. In the buddy group you can see what activities your buddies have been logging and send each other motivational messages and photos as part of your challenge.

The council are asking organisations to pre-register their interest with a named champion or point of contact within each business so that they can send you some further information about the challenge.
