24 HOUR FITATHON

If you would also like to support local Swindon/Wiltshire Charities doing some amazing work at this time, please check out Swindon Children's Scrapstore, Wiltshire Tree House and Swindon Domestic Abuse Service:

People with other illnesses may be experiencing a difference in their care during this time due to the Pandemic. One of the Back2Fitness Sport's Therapists, Kirsty, is currently fighting off cancer and is being supported by the charity Sarcoma UK. If you would like to donate funds to this charity please do so here:

Through my own social media, I saw that many people were struggling with being in lockdown. My thoughts then turned to those who may be having a very difficult experience at this time. I got to thinking about people in the lockdown situation where their home environment is unsafe, in particular adults in domestic abuse relationships, children in homes where they endure child abuse and LGBT young people in homes with homophobic/transphobic family or household member.

Our very own Michaela (leading a mobility session for the event), experienced and came back strongly from an ectopic pregnancy. This charity is therefore of personal importance to us as a staff team at Battleground Fitness.

The NHS and the many charities that are supporting the NHS with care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic are doing a sterling job and I also felt it was important to recognise them throughout this fundraising effort.

I then set up a fitness partnership with all of the organisations listed at the bottom of this page to hold a 24 Hour Fitness Event.
