A fun community activity! An activity where everyone can take part - young and old, Leo/Lions member or not, healthy and handicapped at any location in the city, in the countryside, in the forest and water. An activity that costs almost nothing - just a little time and a small participation fee.
Move and do something charitable in a sustainable way?
Fundraising runs have been organised by individual Lions Clubs for years. Therefore you were always able to take part in regional campaigns. Move for the planet is similar but differs nevertheless – we take the power of the Leos and Lions in Germany and Europe and bundle it to create something new and powerful.
With Move for the Planet, a new sustainable commitment is being established. Because participation in this activity does not only benefits one's own health, but also the environment.
We also cordially invite Lions and Leos from other countries to join our Move for the Planet. Together we can move more!
Review and outlook: Move for the Planet 2022
In spring 2023, Move for the Planet will enter the next round! Time to draw a conclusion to the first Move! Here is the proud result of the first Move for the Planet in the Lions year 2021/2022:
The Move in spring 2022 was able to register 1,707 participants from 14 nations. A remarkable number, especially if you imagine that the people had all started moving at the same time. To accommodate individual preferences as well as lingering Corona fears, everyone could run, walk, swim, bike or wheelchair then and there, wherever he or she wanted.
In consideration of the 52,000 Lions in Germany, there is still "room for improvement" in the result, but it is still respectable: more than 21,600 euros were paid into the donation account by the 1,335 adults and 372 children/youths, including many Leos, in addition to more than 6,000 euros in Move donations, which were received directly by the Foundation of the German Lions (SDL). The costs were covered by the participants' voluntary transaction costs and contributions of 300 euros each from the participating districts, so that all participant contributions went to the projects. The donation amounts in detail are listed below in the 2022 project presentations.
Many thanks to all who participated!
The feedback showed fun, good humor and the joy of joint action. Unimagined potentials were raised e.g. by a Lions friend from the LC Neumünster, who motivated 64 friends and acquaintances to participate in a perceived "mobility boost". Through a well-traveled Lions friend from Kappeln, who recruited Move-Walkers in Australia - in addition to family, sports friends and colleagues on site. By a young teamer from Lüneburg, who convinced a whole confirmation group to commit themselves as a community team for the Move. In addition, there were forest tours and club walks, sponsored school classes and company teams, family outings and golf tournaments for the benefit of the Move.
By the way, the Move team urgently needs reinforcements to implement many new ideas and improvements. If you would like to join the volunteer team, please contact Annette Brand at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's move together!
