When it comes to ideas for Men’s Health Week events, the sky’s the limit. The Week has snowballed in the last few years. In 2008, there were over 3,000 events.
The theme this year is physical activity so how about a fun run, a green gym project, a try-out day with a variety of healthy activities, a sponsored swim, walk or cycle, a dancing night, a tennis or football tournament etc. Team up with your local sports club(s) or stadia.
Appeal to a broad section of the population - all ages, ethnic groups and ability levels - to make your event more representative of your local community, more attractive to more people and improve its chances of getting funding.
Here’s our checklist for running a great event. You might be able to think of more. Ensure tasks are clearly allocated to the right people and that they have agreed and have realistic deadlines.
