SUPER SIT-UP CHALLENGE FOR NI CHILDREN’S HOSPICE RAISES £1327

Fighting Fit Martial Arts and Fitness Centre are delighted to announce that their super sit-up challenge for NI Children’s Hospice raised a total of £1327. 

Taking place throughout the month of October members of the centre, located in Millar Street, Belfast, completed 3,000 sit-ups in just 30 days to raise vital funds for the local children’s charity. 

Speaking at the start of their challenge, Adult Instructor, Richard Corvan said; “We were delighted to be able to hand over £1327 to the Children’s Hospice. We wanted to do something different and that’s when we came up with idea of the sponsored sit-up challenge. We would like to thank all our members who took part and helped us to raise this fantastic amount”.  

Jenay Doyle, Community Fundraiser for NI Children’s Hospice added; “We would like to thank everyone who got involved in this special sit-up challenge and raised funds for the Children’s Hospice. Every pound raised will make a huge difference to the special children and their families that we care for”.
