On Saturday 4th November more than 50 people from across the district joined a Enderby Leisure Centre operator, Everyone Active, in ‘kick-starting’ their fundraising efforts for mental health charity, Mind.
In June this year, Everyone Active (who operate Enderby Leisure and Golf Centre on behalf of Blaby District Council) pledged to raise £100,000 for Mind, to help ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
Enderby Leisure and Golf Centre has pledged to raise £1,000 before June next year to help them achieve this goal.
To help reach their fundraising target, colleagues and members at Enderby Leisure and Golf Centre took part in an hour long Fight Master Class.
‘Fight Klub’ offers a high intensity work out by combining a range of moves from boxing, kick boxing and Thai boxing to upbeat music.
James Naylor, Everyone Active’s contract manager said:
“We are proud to be working with Mind as our chosen charity partner. The team at Mind carry out lots of great work and are passionate about raising awareness of mental health.
“I am delighted that our members and colleagues have raised such a fantastic amount for Mind while staying active.”
One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year.
Physical activity is proven to benefit mental wellbeing in a number of ways, including easing feelings of stress and reducing the risk of depression.
The partnership between Everyone Active and Mind will encourage more people to engage with physical activity and feel these benefits.
