Gym challenge for Stand Up 2 Cancer

A SPECIAL gym challenge to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK is to be arranged by the Dromara fundraising committee of the charity.

And the organisers are looking for teams of four people to get involved.

The event, which is being organised with the help of staff at Dromore Leisure Centre, will be held on Sunday 14 October 2012. This fundraiser is coming under the banner of ‘Stand Up 2 Cancer’, who are airing a programme on Channel 4 on Friday 19 October with a format along the lines of children in need to fundraise and my event will be raising money for this.

One person from each team will have to do either a 1500m row, 1,000 metres on the treadmill, 1700 strides on the cross trainer or 3,000m on the bicycle.

A fundraising target has been set at a minimum of £50 for each participant. There will be a prize for team with the best accumulative time.
