We are challenging our members at Fitness Canterbury to come together to raise money for Youthline in support of Mental Health
On the 8th September Fitness Canterbury is challenging its Members and Staff to complete 1000 reps of an exercise or multiple exercises or an equivalent in distance for either running, rowing etc. It can be an exercise of their choosing but the most important thing is that it has to be a challenge that they have to train for.
Entry into the challenge costs $20 with 100% of the proceeds going to Youthline!
Why Youthline! With the challenges placed on our young population - it is vital that they have people to talk too when life seems to be getting on top of them.
"Suicide is a way of leaving a community. If you want to turn that round we've got to make sure that we've got communities that young people want to be a part of and feel safe and secure,"
Youthline provide an invaluable service for them, being there for them when they need someone caring to talk too and providing programs and a supportive, caring community. Its so important to be able to give back to an organisation like this.
Each member who takes part in the challenge selects a specific exercise or a medley of exercises completing 1000 reps or the equivalent of 1000 reps.
Even if you are not competing in our 1000 Rep Challenge we would greatly appreciate.
This is the second charity event we are doing for Youthline - the first was December 2017. We feel it is a very good cause and would like to help where we can.
