At Discovery Vitality, we are committed to doing all we can to enhance and protect lives across the country, and would like you to be a part of this through our latest Vitality MoveToGive initiative. We have partnered with FoodForward SA to reduce the high levels of food wastage in our country and recover surplus food from the likes of farms, retailers and restaurants – ensuring that this food reaches those who need it most.


This is how you can be part of this important initiative


Vitality members and public members taking part in the Vitality Open can get active, drive well and give back. Achieve your weekly fitness and driving goals and spend your reward points on MoveToGive charity donations to provide a week’s worth of meals to a child in need. Your donation will help to cover the various costs associated with getting surplus food to registered beneficiary organisations across the country.


The more weekly goals you achieve, the more chances you have to donate to this worthy cause, and the more children you can help to feed.


Vitality MoveToGive and FoodForward SA will be at the Waterfall parkrun on Saturday, 6 October 2018 and the Gilloolys parkrun on Saturday, 13 October 2018 to collect non-perishable food that will go towards feeding children in need. We encourage you to bring tinned and dry goods like grains and beans and we’ll donate these on your behalf.


Heading to a different parkrun? You can still donate to MoveToGive through the Discovery app.


If you achieve your weekly fitness and driving goals, you will be able to select MoveToGive as your reward on the Discovery app until 14 October, and take part in this initiative to help feed a child for a week.
