Kids Run Free Update

July 9, 2020 - The story of ‘Kids Run Free’ has been chosen to be featured as part of Nike’s ‘Together We Fly Community Challenge’, and has been shared on the Nike Run Club (NRC) app. It’s available to millions of users across Europe, the Middle East and Africa from today.

Made to Play is Nike’s commitment – with community partners – to get kids moving through play and sport. All kids love to play, but not every kid has the opportunity, especially those from underrepresented communities.

Nike are on a mission to change that, and since June 26th they have been operating the first Nike Run Club community challenge, a new feature of the Nike Run Club app where everyone is running towards one (bigger) goal. Nike asked athletes to join the ‘Together We Fly’ challenge and run a collective 2,000,000km to inspire over 300,000 kids as part of our Made to Play commitment across EMEA.

There is still plenty of time for kids and adults to get involved with the ‘Together We Fly Challenge’ too. Every run you go on counts and gets Nike closer to the 2,000,000km goal. So, whether you run a little or a lot, the whole NRC community will be running with you. With your help, nothing can hold us back.

It would be great if some of our Emscote pupils got involved and got warmed up ready for action with Marathon Kids in September. I know I will definitely be downloading the app to use with my family as a ‘Vallins Challenge’ this summer!

Please access the site for lots more activities that you and your family can have fun with, in addition to being healthy and active!
