The SVT Community Sports Hub in association with Laois Sports Partnership are delighted to announce that they are joining forces to deliver an Operation Transformation in Stradbally, Timahoe and Vicarstown.  The Operation Transformation programme is designed as a challenge for the 3 areas to see which team can lose the most combined weight loss percentage.

Teams will be made up of 6 leaders from each area. The team will be weighed in on night 1 of the programme which is Monday the 9th of January. The teams will then be weighed again on Saturday the 18th of February.

Each area will hold two physical activity sessions per week which are opened to any persons in the area who wishes to take part. A calendar of events can be found on the SVT Facebook page @SVT community sports hub

Your 6 area leaders taking part in the challenge will be revealed in the coming weeks so keep an eye out…… you never know who might be representing your area.

The main aim of this challenge is to create a fun and friendly atmosphere around being physically active and burning off the extra Christmas calories. We encourage anyone who wants to be active to come on board and follow the programmes on the RTE Operation Transformation website.
