34 schools and over 17,000 people already signed up for the ‘Big Pledge’

Wiltshire’s Big Pledge is back for 2017 and this year’s free challenge, which encourages people of all ages to get more active, has a World Athletics Championships theme.

The challenge starts on the 5th June and registration is already open. It is great to see that Neston school has already signed up and they will get a free kit bag full of equipment. If you are connected to a school, why not sign up as well and get involved.

It was also good to see Steph Millward again at Springfield who is supporting the Big Pledge.
