Red Nose Day 2015: Make every mile count with DW

March 09 2015

You may be used to seeing red faces around the gym but this Friday 13th prepare for an influx of red noses, as Fitness First Clubs gets involved in Red Nose Day festivities to raise money for Comic Relief.

People all across the UK get together to raise money for Comic Relief, by participating in all sorts of hilarious and wacky activities. Since its creation in 1988 Red Nose Day has been hugely popular because it’s one of the only days of the year when people can really let their hair down and have a laugh while supporting a fantastic cause.

Last year, Red Nose Day managed to raise a phenomenal total of over £100 million, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the public and everybody involved. All of the money raised is used to support vulnerable or deprived people across the UK and Africa, which can really make a difference and change people’s lives.

This year the theme is “make your face funny for money” and here at Fitness First Clubs we couldn’t think of a more worthy excuse to don our wackiest gym outfits, paint our faces and get involved in raising some money for Comic Relief. Here’s what you can expect from the day if you come down to one of our gyms.

Paint it red

Fitness First Clubs will be awash with red this Friday, as all of our trainers and members are encouraged to turn up to classes and workouts in red outfits. Be sure to look out for the red donation buckets that will be placed around the gyms too, as all money that we collect will go to Comic Relief.

Why not make your face funny for money with some red face paint, glitter or a fake moustache? The crazier the better, after all, it’s for a good cause!

Bring your friend

We want to make this Red Nose Day the biggest and most fun yet, which is why we are inviting every member to bring along a friend on the day. All you and your friend need to do is to sign in at reception and make a donation to Comic Relief, then your pal can enjoy a free workout.

Every mile counts

Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of healthy competition?

Every Fitness First Club will be in competition with each other to try and rack up the most miles on the day. Whether you are running, cycling, swimming, or walking - every mile counts towards your gym’s final total.

You can log your miles with the staff at reception and the winning gym will be awarded their very own Red Nose Day certificate, which will be proudly displayed for all to see, naturally. But It’s not just up to the members to make up the miles - expect to see Fitness First Clubs staff members powering their way to victory, wacky wig and red nose included of course!

So come to one of our gyms and help Fitness First Clubs raise some money for Red Nose Day 2015. Not a member yet? It’s not too late to join in, sign up today and you can get the rest of March absolutely free.
