About The Challenge
Companies and organisations across County Durham are invited to take part in the 'Workplace Challenge'. The aim of the programme is to promote sport, physical activity and health improvements across the UK's workplaces.
Sign up to record your sport and physical activity online to receive points – and points make prizes! But it's not about winning, 'spot prizes' are offered during the national 8 week Activity Log challenge as part of a draw simply by taking part.
