STAFF from a leisure centre put themselves to the test and took on a mini-triathlon for a good cause.
The team at Fareham Leisure Centre in Park Lane did the fundraising event in aid of UK blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan.
The charity matches individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people who desperately need lifesaving transplants.
The leisure centre is operated by Everyone Active in partnership with Fareham Borough Council.
Everyone Active recently launched a nationwide month-long campaign to raise funds for the trust as part of Anthony Nolan Awareness Month.
Members, guests and colleagues are encouraged to take part in a range of activity challenges at all the local centres.
Seven teams of three colleagues at Fareham Leisure Centre took on a mini-triathlon- swim, cycle, run, each covering as much distance as possible in their chosen discipline in 10 minutes.
The teams raised a total of £83 which takes the total from this month’s activity to over £1,000, and closer to the company’s goal of £100,000 this year.
‘Taking on the mini-triathlon for Anthony Nolan was great fun and a brilliant “quick-fire” workout,’ said Everyone Active centre manager Ryan Grant.
‘Going all out for 10 minutes definitely gets your heart pumping,
‘Anthony Nolan Awareness Month is the perfect opportunity to get involved in a new activity or take on a new challenge, while raising money for a fantastic cause.
‘We hope the local community will be inspired to join in.’
