Our first Charity Event of 2014 was for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Charity. For this we Rowed and Skied 1000m for every year GOSH had been open, totalling 160,000m. This was our 5th Charity Event and our first with new team members Deb and Jack.
After rowing and skiing outside Tesco for a whole day, through the help and generosity of the general public, JustGym managed to raise £900!
For our World Cup Challenge, we picked a Game of the Day everyday throughout the group stages. Members predicted the result of this game then completed a challenge that was attached to their prediction. 1 point was rewarded for the correct guess. After 15 days, Danny Murphy-Moore had the most points, and won Carnival Tickets to Saffron Walden's '8dayweekend'!
We held our first 'Health Awareness' month through October, starting with Diabetes. We teamed up with the 3 doctors surgeries in town and offered people with diabetes a month's use of the gym and 4 personal training sessions.
Towards the end of the month, we held a torture raffle with all members of staff undergoing various 'torture' challenges from the raffle winners.
Lot's of fun and laughs were had and we managed to raise £580 for Diabetes UK!
For our christmas challenge this year, we decided to make an advent calendar! Our take on the christmas tradition included different exercise challenges behind each door. There were 6 different pictures relating to different category of exercise. Simply open the door, pick a card to the corresponding category, and complete the challenge!
