The PureGym National Relay wins the Third Sector Business Charity Award for 'Challenge Event of the Year'.
The Relay took place between 18th and 25th June, with PureGym colleagues running, walking and cycling their way across the country. Sir Chris Hoy kicked off the relay in Aberdeen, before joining the final stage of the Relay from Exeter to Plymouth. PureGym members were encouraged to support their local gym through fundraising activities, as well as cheering on the team as the Relay passed through their area.
Announced the partnership to press. A running total is available on a dedicated website for the Relay. The website also includes regular updates, as well as a live route tracker, allowing people to follow the progress of the Relay in real-time.
Mental Health UK were chosen by PureGym as their partner for the National Relay.
“There is growing realisation that a healthy life is not just based around good physical health but more needs to be done to encourage people to take care of their mental health and exercise plays a vital role.
We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Mental Health UK. The work they do is invaluable, providing practical advice and information to people across the UK. The aim of this relay is to challenge and unite all PureGym colleagues in celebration of the work they do to make the UK healthier and raise money and awareness for a great cause.”
