Welsh Rugby Union
Players from the national team have since been touring schools in Wales teaching classes how to live healthier lives.
The Welsh Rugby Union are undertaking a number of other activities in response to Health Challenge Wales.
The WRU has run competitions to widen participation in rugby such as women’s ‘tag’ rugby tournaments and the under 15’s Dewar Shield.
The WRU also promotes the Challenge in match programmes, messages from the chairman, on the Millennium Stadium big screen and through pitch-side advertising boards.
National team players have featured in Health Challenge Wales adverts and related local initiatives such as Going for Gold in Newport. And as part of its latest venture, the WRU is getting involved in a testicular cancer awareness campaign.
Chips or Champs
This is a project between the Welsh Rugby Union and Health Challenge Wales, and it’s all about making better choices in everyday life. In Wales we’ve got quite a history of poor health, but it doesn’t have to be like that in the future. Maybe it doesn’t bother you too much now, but if you do something now it’ll make a difference later.
Today’s visitor is a member of the Welsh national rugby team, and he is here to take you on a short journey that looks at his lifestyle and that of some of his mates. But it’s not just about him, and the other top rugby players. It’s about you, and the choices you make, when you eat and exercise. So, listen to his stories, but make sure also that he’s as healthy as he says he is.
