Over the summer we held our very first E.S.K.K Fitness Fiesta. This was a sponsored 3-hour charity event which included everything we teach in our fitness classes and much more. As well as exercises from Kettlebells, Pilates and Enduro-Strike, we also had tyre flipping, battle ropes, log and keg lifts, just to name a few.
In the final section of the event we all headed outside to conquer the Eliminator which was a circuit and obstacle course. Everyone’s spirits were high even though it was cold and pouring with rain, the energy was electric. There was laughter, teamwork, camaraderie and we even had a water balloon fight just to make sure that everyone definitely got drenched!
The event was very well supported with 27 people taking part. We would like to thank all participants and supporters who not only made our very first Fitness Fiesta a complete success, but have helped us create fond memories which we can add to our growing collection.
And what's more is that we managed to raise an amazing £1230.00 for our Community Fund!
Special thanks to Stuart Rigg who helped organise the event and sourced all the new and exciting equipment we trained with on the day.
We would also like to give big thanks to Sylvia Ling and Kelly Scott who were both amazing, making sure we were all fed and watered and capturing the whole event by taking photos and videos in the pouring rain. You are both super stars and we couldn’t have done it without you!
Thanks again everyone and we look forward to doing it again next year!
This is Sam. Sam is 13-years old and a member at our Workington dojo. Recently, Sam recently walked with his family from Workington to Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary for 'Jack's Journey', who was diagnosed with leukaemia at 18-month old. They traced the journey Jack took in the ambulance on foot. Plus he completed this task proudly wearing our E.S.K.K logo!
Walking from Workington all the way to Newcastle is no easy challenge for anyone, let alone a 13-year old! Therefore, we wanted to write a little news article just to raise some awareness and congratulate Sam on a job well done. We think he's set a great example for children his age and we're proud to have him in our dojo.
