I used to feel self-conscious and sluggish in January. RED gave me the motivation to move.

Let's beat those winter blues

Together, we can beat those winter blues.

RED January starts by setting a movement goal that works for you.
Need some inspiration? Here are some of the ways that REDers and RED teams embrace RED January year-on-year.
Why RED works
January can be a difficult month and starting with a positive intention of moving daily as part of a community, for your own and societal benefit, has all of the key evidence-based ingredients to make a real difference.
Our workplace wellbeing campaign
Find out why we’re calling on UK businesses to follow the example of our partner Decathlon UK, and encourage regular movement breaks throughout the working day to support employee mental wellbeing during the winter months and beyond.

Who you support
RED January leads an all-year-round mission to support movement and mental health projects that can drive real change in local communities. To date, the RED community has raised over £3.2 million as part of their annual challenge.
Often focussed on grassroots schemes, we back projects that know and understand their local communities, and can implement longer-lasting, more effective programmes.
