It's time to
Push Play, Aotearoa

You might remember Push Play from back in the day. A nationwide campaign designed to get Kiwis active. Now it’s making a comeback – with a refreshed approach that’s right for right now.

Push Play is a movement movement – designed to encourage and inspire Kiwis to get moving. Why? Because it’s important for our physical and mental health, and also because it’s fun!
