Annual Fitness Fundraisers meet Incredible Success!
Earlier this year in April we shared an article about our work with the Holt family and their events and activities in memory of their loving and caring daughter, Chloe.
Despite the pain experienced by Chloe’s family, they voiced one key resolution – to highlight the struggle that Chloe faced, and to do all they can to prevent it from happening to another family. Through the hard work of Matt Hoyle, Chloe’s Uncle, and Emily Harvey; the family put on an incredible series of Fitness Fundraisers in Chloe’s memory and brought together, friends, family, colleagues, and the community to celebrate Chloe’s memory and to raise money for us at TOG Mind to help support other families going through similar situations.
See the pictures below to see how our colleague Amy got on at the Blood, Sweat and Tears class run by Matt (very sweaty!) and pictures from the Family Fun Day – which was all bouncy castles, face paint, and a tough Cross Fit Taster!
They have raised an absolutely amazing £2,484.74 through their events and through support from their friend Katie, fellow personal trainer with Matt, who ran in the Great Manchester Run this year in Chloe’s memory. See more about Katie’s run in our article here.
We are so grateful for their support and look forward to being involved in future events and activities and helping wherever we can!
Watch this space for an exciting collaboration with Emily Harvey, Concept Artist and Illustrator coming this Christmas time...
In Memory events such as this are so important for us at Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind to not only raise vital funds for our services and support individuals and families in a similar situation but to help us share what we can offer and sign post everyone out in the community to what help they can access. If you’ve been inspired by this story and are interested in running your own event, or if you just want to ask us to have a chat with us about how we can help you with an event, contact fundraising [at] togmind.org.
