GYM instructors have teamed up to raise more than £13,000 for two charities with a crossfit competition as well as the Three Peaks Challenge.
Staff from MGYM Personal Training studio in Formby had three separate teams of staff compete in Battle Cancer, a crossfit competition; and a group of 14 members of staff who took on the Three Peaks Challenge. This is an event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours. It is frequently used to raise money for charitable organisations. Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next.
They raised funds for two charities, Young Lives Vs Cancer and the Oliver King Foundation.
Young Lives vs Cancer is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families. Its care teams provide specialist support across the UK.
The Oliver King Foundation was set up in January 2012 following the tragic death of 12-year-old Oliver King from a hidden heart condition which kills 12 young people every week. The charity provides training in defibrillator awareness and in first aid – and to date they have placed 4,500 defibrillators in schools and organisations across the UK.
