MUDDIED, exhausted, but worth it... more than 60 fitness enthusiasts dug in to raise £1,000 at a charity bootcamp.
Fitness-4-life: Bootcamp ran the successful two-hour charity event at the Anglo-American Playing Fields in Saffron Walden at the end of November.
Constant rain from start to finish had made for a boggy, tough course. But it only contributed to the fun with the entire team getting stuck in to a large circuit training session followed by team games including tug-of-war and tyre-dragging races.
The event raised more than £1,000 for the Teenager Cancer Trust, a great charity close to the team’s hearts, and sponsorship money is still rolling in.
“It was a fabulous afternoon which was exhausting but fun, all ages took part and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves” said Louise Barnes, who was there giving her support and is over 10 years in remission herself.
The session was organised by Lorraine Thompson and Simon Drew, owners of Fitness-4-Life: Bootcamp.
“We cannot begin to thank everybody enough who helped us on the day, or donated to our raffle, and all the participants. They were all amazing and should be very proud of themselves. It was a fabulous day,” said Lorraine.
