Just keep moving!

Kids need at least 60 minutes of activity every day. So Change4Life and Disney have teamed up again to take your kids on a 10 Minute Shake Up summer adventure, inspired by Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory.

Families can once again take part in the 10 Minute Shake Ups as well as enjoying Finding Dory inspired family swim sessions at local pools across the UK, all approved by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA). The swim sessions provide an interactive hour of storytelling fun and activity for the whole family.
