This year on Operation Transformation we are launching a very special campaign in conjunction with the PEAI. 80% of Irish teenage girls are not getting the recommended level of physical activity, with some inactive for up to 20 hours a day. To reverse this negative trend and get girls thinking about the importance of physical activity for the physical and mental health this campaign is for teenage girls by teenage girls.
Throughout the series female role models will doing surprise visits to their former schools to see how their schools are fairing with physical fitness and the ‘It’s Your Move’ campaign.
How to get involved: We are asking teenage girls and their PE Teachers in schools across the country to log on to our website and check out the video tutorial with Sky One’s Got to Dance Choreographers Raw Edge. Each school can follow and learn the steps and upload videos of them rehearsing and performing the routine. We will feature some of these VT uploads in the show. We want to hear from you!
This important campaign will culminate in 2000+ teenage girls performing the routine en masse with the Operation Transformation Experts, Leaders, Role Models also taking part. This will be carried live on 2FM on the Nicky Byrne show on the 12th February as well as in the finale of Operation Transformation Series 9.
