Norfolk people urged to get active in run up to London 2012

Calls are being made for people to pledge to become more active in the run up to next year's Olympics.

To celebrate the London Olympics and Paralympics, Active Norfolk set up Norfolk Pledge 2012 in a bid to get 2,012 people to sign up to take up a new sport or activity.

The pledge can be anything from simply committing to take regular exercise, to healthy eating or doing something specific like taking up a new sport or running a half marathon.

Everyone who makes a pledge will be emailed their own unique numbered Pledge block. The blocks will feature the photos and videos they upload with their pledges and their face will become part of Norfolk's 2012 Flag.

So far, 44 people have already signed up to the scheme.
