Event toolkitsIn addition to the Community Kit, two toolkits were developed during earlier phases of the Measure Up campaign to help you organise an event to promote healthy eating and physical activity.
These toolkits can be used in conjunction with the Community Kit and include a guide on how to organise an event, and templates you can cater to your own needs such as flyers, media releases and speaking notes. The events outlined include a Community Healthy BBQ Challenge and a Workplace Walkathon.
