Golden age sports event
Older people in the Rutherglen area will be encouraged to take part in Europe’s biggest community sport event.
MOVEWeek is an annual event that aims to promote and encourage physical activity on a local level.
Now in its fourth year, it is led by the International Sports and Culture Association and is the flagship event of the organisation’s NowWeMOVE campaign. MOVEWeek will run this year from September 21 to 27 and South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture General Manager Gerry Campbell was enthusiastic about the campaign.
He said:“These examples of good practice highlight the commitment being made not only in South Lanarkshire but across Europe to raise the profile and importance of engaging older people in physical activity and encouraging people to become more physically active.”
