WELLITY ACTIVE CHILDREN
Wellity Active is a fitness clothing and lifestyle brand referred to as 'the badge of a healthy lifestyle.' It was inspired by Molly, Joe and Phoebe, three Devon school children aged 10,11 &12 who believe that everyone should be better informed about the importance of health and fitness. Their mission is to encourage everyone to look good and feel great through active living and increased body confidence.
"When Wellity Active were asked to be involved, we jumped at the opportunity. Wellity was started by three children with the aim to increase physical activity within youngsters …. everything that the South West Youth Games encompasses.
"The day is an enjoyable fun event added with healthy competition and the Games aim to inspire young people to take part in regular sporting activities no matter what their standard is. We are delighted to be ambassadors for such a worthy series of events." Simon Scott-Nelson, Director, Wellity Active
