Year of You campaign

Getting involved with sport as an athlete or volunteer is a great way to improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being while enjoying the benefits of social connections and personal growth. Throughout January, viaSport will highlight the importance and benefits of maintaining physical activity and an active lifestyle through our #YearofYou campaign. We will feature personal sport participation stories from a number of different participants. Get inspired to keep moving by watching our social media channels and website throughout the month.
