To celebrate the NHS’ 70th birthday and to raise awareness of the importance of keeping fit, the Fylde coast NHS has organised a world record attempt.
The attempt, taking place at Lytham Festival on 21 July 2018, will be for the most people exercising to a fitness video in a single location and will require more than 5,000 people on the day.
The event should be a great day out for all with families and children urged to come along and be a record breaker!
However, with events such as this there are costs and the main organiser, NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group, has asked for support from the Fylde coast business community.
A number of sponsorship opportunities are available, such as funding for volunteer tabards or certificates and medals for all that take part. There is also the potential to help with transport from locations that are further away from Lytham.[/column][column]
Businesses are also welcome to organise for groups of staff to take part in the attempt as part of team-building initiatives.
Dr Tony Naughton, clinical chief officer at the CCG, said: “Our event, which we have branded as ‘Fitter Fylde Coast’, could help companies in the area demonstrate their commitment to health and wellbeing.
“We would love to have your support, whatever it may be.
“Our plans to break the world record will be formally launched on Tuesday 29 May and we are expecting significant media attention. Of course any businesses that support us will receive mentions on our social media channels and in publicity about the event.”
