Soundabout Moveabout

Spending time in nature is great for our bodies and minds

There are lots of reasons why being out in nature is good for the Soundabout community – and unfortunately lots of barriers to accessing it. But where it’s possible to get outdoors, we can all benefit.

Moveabout 2024 is all about getting outside and spending time in nature. For some people, Moveabout is a chance to fundraise for Soundabout. For others, it’s simply an incentive to get active in the natural world.

However you want to moveabout, we’d love to have you along for the journey. Let’s go outside!

Moveabout Mondays

FAQs

Who is Moveabout for?

Moveabout is for anyone who wants to stay active and get outside during the winter months. This could be walking, wheeling, running, or engaging with nature in a sensory way.

Do I have to fundraise to take part in Moveabout?

Although we hope some people will use Moveabout to raise vital funds for Soundabout, it is also a chance for the Soundabout community to get outdoors and access all the benefits that nature has to offer.

What's new about Moveabout this year?

Moveabout 2024 has more to get involved in than ever before!

We are launching Moveabout Mondays - online group sessions open to all Moveabouters with different activities every week. For the first time, we are hosting a Moveabout Meet Up in an accessible outdoor location (area TBD depending on who signs up for Moveabout). For those looking to take part in special events during this time we can offer 5 people £20 off race spaces for events through Run for Charity. Offered on first-come-first-served basis with requests via email. 

Do I have to move a certain amount?

No! You can choose to move as much or as little as you want. When you sign up, you can choose a target you think you will be able to move over 2 months (you can change this target at any point). Even just being outside is beneficial for our health - your goal doesn't have to be distance related. Maybe you want to see how much wildlife you can spot? 

Will I receive anything when I sign up?

Yes! When you sign up, you can choose to have a digital Moveabout 2024 welcome pack or a postal pack with your very own Soundabout water bottle. Both options include lots of helpful info, sensory ideas and fun activities - including Let's Go Outside Bingo!
