HARRY MACMILLAN, CEO, MEND Local mentoring schemes


in sport and life, supporting children and young people to succeed while promoting healthy, active lifestyles and sport in their local communities. Using world-class athletes to inspire and


T


engage children to be more physically active lends itself well to the work we do in tackling childhood obesity, and it’s especially relevant leading up to the Olympics. We’re therefore partnering with the DKH


Legacy Trust to run a mentoring scheme, which was piloted last month. Former Commonwealth Games swimming champion Adam Whitehead shared his experiences with children and parents on the MEND 7–13 Programme in Dudley, West Midlands, and he will continue to support them during post-programme swimming sessions. Whitehead’s role as a mentor is a motivational one, which we hope will lead MEND graduates to sustain positive behaviour change and live fi tter, healthier and happier lives.

and, at ZigZag, we’ve pioneered wireless score tracking cards to introduce this same concept to our young dance mat users. The cards provide an invisible thread to the equipment, much like Nike+, so we can keep in constant contact to say ‘well done’, ‘keep at it’, ‘look what you’ve achieved this month’. These motivational


triggers require minimum effort – they’re generated by the system rather than by the health club or leisure centre – and yet have maximum effect. Kids don’t want to wait six weeks to see results and now they don’t have to: dancers can monitor their activity levels and compare scores with people around the world instantly, via the internet.
