Weʼve raised £516 to Help fund a new outdoor gym for Bollington for the community to get fit and healthy
- Funded on Wednesday, 15th February 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In April 2017 Fitness4All have been open 8 years and to celebrate we want to improve the health of our village.
We’re passionate about people being healthier, fitter and happier and that stands whether you’re a member of Fitness4All or not.
So over the next 8-12 months we’ll be holding a range of different campaigns and activities to improve the health and fitness of Bollington.
And our ultimate aim is to have an outdoor gym installed in the village.
* Yes a completely free outdoor fitness area! *
The equipment will provide a range of cardiovascular, toning and wellbeing exercises, suitable for all ages. There’s only six of these in Cheshire (that we know of!) and the nearest one is in Cheadle.
A recent study from Liverpool John Moores University found that people who used an outdoor gym once a week reported an increase confidence to take part in physical activity, undertook more physical activity, felt physically fitter and healthier and had better mental wellbeing - feeling more relaxed and less stressed.
We’re not sure where yet, there are a few areas that have been suggested so far.
We’re going to be getting going with fundraising for this very soon and any suggestions or if anyone wants to get involved just message me.
There’ll be loads more going on over the next few months so keep an eye out on our Facebook Page and we’ll be keeping you updated in here too
