Rainbow Hub’s first virtual Workout-Athon on target to raise more than £1,700

The seventh annual Rainbow Hub Workout-Athon which took place on Sunday 7th March 2021 had to go virtual

this year but is on target to raise more than £1,700.

The event, supported by JMW solicitors, would normally have taken place at Preston North End Football Club

but the pandemic meant that participants had to take part in the three hours of fun filled and energetic

workouts via Zoom from their own homes to raise the much needed funds for the Mawdesley based charity

supporting children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities

Classes including Rock Box, Attack and Combat Mash Up, Zumba, Legs, Bums & Tums and HIIT Mash Up

were delivered by qualified fitness instructors: Rachel Burrows, Gill Swift, Joanne Berends-Sheriff,

Kurt McDonnell and Penny Seddon, also working from their homes, with one as far away as Cornwall.

Participants from all around the North West took part including Formby, Liverpool, Wigan, Preston, Leyland,

Burscough, Merseyside, Manchester, Darwen, Chorley and Morecambe, together with one from London.

Lisa Maddison from Formby, said, “Brilliant event and thank you so much to all of the awesome instructors

and everyone for taking part!! We loved it.”

Lyndsay Fahey, Chief Executive, Rainbow Hub, said “We are delighted that so many decided to take part this year

even though we had to go virtual. It was lots of fun and our thanks go to those who took participated and our

supporter, JMW Solicitors. We are also extremely grateful to all the instructors and Kat Nelson, our Head of

Fundraising who organised the event in its new format so well.”
