5-11th October 2021
Community Fitness Week was a brand new initiative which launched in 2019 to raise awareness of community fitness and the instructors delivering sessions around the UK. Community Fitness can be anything from a Zumba Fitness class in your community centre, to a small walking group, to Pilates in the local primary school. Fitness can have such a huge impact on a community and helps build one. Besides the obvious fitness benefits, it also build social circles, removes barriers, and looks after mind and body
In 2019, the campaign supported over 380 food banks and saw a huge 125,000 meals donated by instructors all around the Country. 2020 has a mission of 500,000 meals and we need your help to make that happen!
The Key Points
How Does It Work?
Each instructor will run their weekly sessions as normal, but will re-brand for one week with the Community Fitness Week branding.
You will ask your participants to bring a non perishable item of food to donate to the class they attend. Due to Covid-19 and the likely hood of virtual classes, participants can also donate food parcels using crowdfunding. Full details provided in the instructor info pack.
At the end of the week you will be able to deliver the items to your local food bank to help your community on a bigger scale, or we will make a cash donation for the equivalent of your fundraising to the food bank of your choice.
How Many Classes Do I Need To Run?
Minimum 1 throughout the week. We have deliberately suggested that instructors do this as an addition to their normal class week to prevent any additional work. You may of course turn it in to the huge extravaganza which we hope it is and go wildly over the top. You do not need to run your class for free or at a lower cost if you do not wish too. We do ask you to ask your participants to support the #fitnessforfood campaign during the week through either food donations or gifting food parcels via Just Giving.
What Does It Cost To Join?
It's a great way to get your classes buzzing and pack them out, without directly advertising your business. This week supports building communities and instructors and participants get excited about it
