After many years of campaigning Homer Hill Park now has footpaths. We want to turn part of our path into a fitness track. By installing pull up bars, push up bars, sit up bench, monkey bars and a stepper, the looped path becomes a FREE TO USE fitness track.
The looped path is 0.54 km in length, slopes slightly upwards on one side, so is perfect for running or speed walking. Adding upper body fitness bars and the path becomes a fitness track.
This would greatly beneficent anyone wanting to keep fit or loose weight.
On Sunday 12th February 2017 along with my wife Rachael, I will running The Barcelona Half Marathon.
I'm a Dudley Councillor for Cradley and Wollescote and Chairman of The Friends of Homer Hill Park, Cradley.
I turned 50 in January 2016 and last May following an over 50's health check, I was classed as OBESE with a high cholesterol level and at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
That was the wake up call I needed, to do something about my ever expanding waist and total lack of any fitness!
I have now lost 45 lbs and never thought I would ever run again. After walking as quick as possible every morning for 2 and 1/2 months, the pain in my knees started ease. I then started running for the first time in over 30 years. I never dreamt I would ever run, let alone 13.1 miles!
I now want to support others who want to become fitter and leaner, by starting a running/walking club in Jan 2017 on Homer Hill Park.
If your able to, please support me in raising as much money as we can. I promise every single penny you donate, will go towards Cradley's much needed fitness track. I can guarantee your donation will help save Our NHS £1000's and prevent health related premature death.
With your help, everyone wanting a complete body workout, or just a few pull/push ups will be able to do so. This can be achieved without the need to join a gym. And on a quiet traffic free section of Cradley's Homer Hill Park.
Many thanks for reading,
