Do Yourself Proud Colour Run and Personal Best Challenges

The Get Ahead Partnership organised the third Do Yourself Proud event at the Brumby Hall Sports Ground on Friday 23rd March 2018. The event was attended by seventeen primary and junior schools from North Lincolnshire, with nearly 400 children from across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 taking part.

The event was aimed at children who were less active or less confident, who have not represented their school before. This event had a focus around children achieving their personal best during a variety of different challenges, and then taking part in a fun run filled with lots of colour. This was delivered by the Get Ahead team and leaders from North Lindsey College who were fantastic. Throughout the personal best challenges a variety of activities were experienced by all the children, these included; Around Your Body and Under Your Leg, How Many Hops they could do, Throw, Clap & Catch, Bean Bag Challenge, Hop, Squat & Jump and Agility Sequence Touching Cones.

This enabled each school to try and enjoy new challenges in a time limit of thirty seconds that they could then go away and practice either in school or at home to improve their own personal best. During the challenges children represented their schools and showed great determination, honesty, self-belief and enthusiasm. Following this the children then completed a one mile run in the aid of Sport Relief, this was done with lots of colour and fantastic smiles throughout the duration. Children completed a 400m circuit at least four times, some going round more. During this there were different colour stations in which the Get Ahead team made all the participants, as well as themselves very colourful.

Post event, the smiles on children’s faces was excellent and receiving feedback from both staff and children has been brilliant! Please see below some of the comments;
