Aerobathon raises over £2,000 for charity
An Aerobathon which took place at Lifestyle Health & Fitness Suite on Saturday 15th October has raised a significant £2,250 for the Breast Cancer Campaign.
The Gym, located in the Riviera International Centre timed its Aerobathon with October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Every year around 50,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer, said Emma Wright, Organiser and Fitness Instructor, “which is why my friends and family as well as our Lifestyle Members wanted to support the cause and help raise awareness.”
The Aerobathon took place from 10am until 4:40pm with classes including Zumba, Cardio Cycling, Yoga and Boxercise among others. Participants were able to select which classes they took part in, however many undertook the whole timetable from start to finish.
“The Riviera Centre, and in particular Lifestyle Health & Fitness Suite were delighted to sponsor this event and support Emma and her Personal Training colleagues who made this such a successful event” said Barry Cole Riviera Centre Managing Director.
The minimum donation for each class was £5, however participants each raised significantly more than that with the incentive that 100% of the proceeds would be donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign and prizes would be awarded to the top 4 fundraisers. All participants also received a gift pack which included gifts from 100% Health who generously supported the Aerobathon.
“I am overwhelmed with how much we have raised, said Emma. “There were a few aching limbs the day after, however everyone who took part including the Children in our Kids Classes can give themselves a big pat on the back. I would also like to give a particular mention to Jane Zaple whose efforts alone raised over £350.”
The unique Aerobathon which encouraged both Children and Adults to take part provided Children with the opportunity to learn new skills in a fun environment as they were guided by both the Fitness Instructors and their parents.
