In aid of its newly chosen charity LA fitness is holding an in-club challenge to recreate the ‘Walking With The Wounded’ South Pole Expedition to raise money to help injured ex-servicemen and women adapt to life outside of the armed forces. The challenge will mirror the 16 days that the expedition is expected to last and will start on the 1st September across over 75 of its clubs. For the final weekend (14th-16th) LA fitness will be opening its doors for non-members to come and join in the fundraising efforts.
All those taking part will be invited to donate £3.35 to cover at least 1km on any gym equipment – from treadmills to steppers or even a South Pole themed studio class the company has created. The proceeds will go to the charity which raises funds to support our wounded, injured and sick as they make the difficult transition from military to civilian employment.
Prince Harry, Patron of ‘Walking With The Wounded’ says: “The vision behind ‘Walking With The Wounded’ – to reintegrate wounded servicemen and women successfully back into civilian life – recognises the unquenchable spirit and drive of these young people. It aims to harness their determination and energy, whilst adjusting their mind-set to face the numerous challenges that lie ahead. I urge everyone to support them”.
So for a great chance to support your local heroes as well as get fit and have fun with family and friends get down to your local LA fitness September 14th-16th.
