Summer 2016 will see the world’s best athletes competing at the Paralympic Games in Rio. The Active Kids Paralympic Challenge will inspire schools and young people to learn more about Paralympic sports, try them out, and provide exclusive high profile prizes for taking part including a trip to the Paralympic Games in Rio.
Taking part is simple. All you need to do is register your school and you will receive a FREE Active Kids Paralympic Challenge equipment pack which you can then use to take on the challenges. Packs are available on a first come, first served basis.
The Active Kids Paralympics Challenge is split into three phases:
Challenge young people to travel the distance to Rio by downloading Get Set’s Road to Rio app. Within the app choose the Paralympic Challenge sports and log your activity and you can win special badges and amazing prizes.
All schools registered to take part will also receive 100 Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers, which can be exchanged for sports and cooking equipment to be used in your school.
