Home / Moving Stories

We’re looking for ‘Moving Stories’ across our region!

Did something significant happen in your life that inspired you to try something new, to be more physically active? Perhaps someone you know has discovered a new pastime that helped them manage a health condition, or found a new, welcoming community that improved their mental health and sense of wellbeing? Whatever the age, gender, ability or background, every story matters to us.

‘Moving Stories’ is about celebrating people from across our region who have made a change in their lives. We’re not looking for gold medalists. We want to hear about someone with diabetes who started walking 2000 steps each day. Or somebody who took up yoga to support their mental health. Whatever it is, from running to riding, football to gardening. We want to hear about all the diverse #movingstories in our region.

In our very first brand campaign, we’ll be sharing #movingstories from across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire, hoping that these inspiring stories from real people will motivate others to make the same great changes, and we’d love to hear from YOU!

If you have a story, please email abi.dixon@thinkactive.org with your story (and perhaps a photograph or two) and we’ll be in touch. You might also like to nomate someone by filling out our NOMINATION FORM
