About the
Campaign

We all might have a pretty good idea of what we need to do to lose weight and get fit, but doing it alone can sometimes feel like an uphill struggle. So let’s come together as a city to change the way we live, work and play, and help make Newcastle the healthiest, happiest city it can be.

Please join us by updating us on your progress and making it count towards the grand total. In return, we’ll give you regular diet and fitness tips, let you know what’s going on in your area and keep you updated on what Hugh’s doing in Newcastle throughout the year.
