Wanting to get in shape or fancy testing your fitness levels? Then why not get your heart pumping by taking part in a fundraising sports day for your local hospital’s neuro-rehabilitation ward.

Our Hospitals Charity is encouraging people to dig out their trainers and join them on Saturday 3 July at Hinderwell Sports Field in Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

The day is being hosted by Harry Schofield, who when not working as a physiotherapist assistant at The James Cook University Hospital runs his own company – CCW Fitness.

Money raised from the event will be used to buy new equipment for the hospital’s rehabilitation gym, which helps patients undertake specialist rehabilitation.

On the morning of the fundraiser Harry will be running three boot camp classes, starting from 9am. For just £5 you will be able to participate in one of the 45 minute classes and have a post workout drink and breakfast bun.

On the afternoon there will be five-a-side football tournament kicking off at 12.30pm. Entry is £20 per team and each team should have a maximum of eight players with a minimum age of 16-years-old.

If football isn’t your thing then why not sign up to Harry’s game of rounders? It’s just £2 per person and all levels of people are welcome!

There will also be plenty of live music, food, and drink for spectators.

Booking is essential for each of the day’s activities so make sure you do not miss out by signing up today via coachingtheclevelandway@gmail.com or www.ccwfitness.com.

Harry said: “I really hope people will come along, join in the fun and help us raise money to improve patient experience through the purchasing of new equipment to aid with their rehabilitation.”

Suzi Campbell from Our Hospitals Charity added: “We are really looking forward to seeing everyone taking part in the sports day and we would like to say thank you in advance to Harry for raising money for ward 26; it will make a huge difference for our patients.”
