For most patients and families who are diagnosed with cancer it is the start of the battle for their end of days, it is in essence their ARMAGEDDON.
On Saturday the 29th of January 2011 Eggbuckland Community College held host to our first ‘Armageddon’ a fitness kickboxing based insanity workout all in aid of Cancer Research UK and St Lukes Hospice.
We developed the Armageddon workout to help raise some cash and awareness for Cancer Research UK and St Lukes Hospice, and was inspired by the recent loss of Lisa’s mother Shirley Lowe who at the age of 62 passed away from cancer in November last year.
We were so touched by the care shown to Shirley at St Luke’s and shaken too by the effects of cancer on our family, we decided to hold a massive fitness session and raise money for both charities.
Armageddon was a great success, and a huge well done and massive thank you to all 70+ people who took part we have now raised over £1745 split between the two charities.
The workout was hold over two sessions, the first hour was for the youngsters ranging from 2 Up to 12yrs, and the second session was set up for the 13s and over all the way up to over 60!
Armageddon was a challenging workout taking their participants through a battle of a workout, where they were pushed to do more than they thought they could and unleash their inner warrior with some simple pad bashing kickboxing drills.
Armageddon was a great success and we will be doing other charity events in the future, if you want to take part in the next charity fitness event keep checking out the web site or get in touch via our contacts page.
